I don't like the food here. It is way TOO spicy. The INERA is NOT good (bad inera at an Ethiopian restaurant?) When I've snitched a french fry off a friends plate (on several separate occasions), it was obviously fried in stale oil. staff seems uninterested in the customers. not sure why anyone should eat here - EVER.

uh-maaay-zing. My first time here and I feel like this place fits like an old shoe. Don't have to dress to impress, being yourself is cool - crisp sneakers or not. MC brothers have years under their belt and take the stage like their couch. everybody's natural, it's a non competitive environment (the night I went), welcoming, supportive and some SICK performers. they didn't start even near on time, but cheap coffee and intriguing art on the walls bought some time. people were coming all the way from tx and philly to perform. i found about few favorite new artists whose fan wagon imma join : hassan mackey, his boy whose name i don't know but i wont soon his voice or his look (whew...), tracie lynn (even i saw dollar signs when i saw her on stage), goodsnj delivered a surprise (i like his voice)...and dj schizophrenic, mr. lee, poetry man...solid acts by a handful. The rest were amateurs - hilarious, nervous, a few posers...overall, MC's never flinched a negative brow. the one-verse or one-poem limit are sometimes the best rule ..haha.. come if you wanna kick back and have your ideas massaged. p.s. bass player, drums and dj boo improv skills are their own side show A place for the hopeful, soulful and ... good rappers. i plan on being a regular.

I'm writing this review more than 6 months after eating there so I don't remember a whole lot of what I had. What I do remember was that I wasn't very impressed. My wife and I both had 2 different prix fixe menus each over a hundred smackaroos (not worth it, order off the menu if you must) A few of the minuses I remember was the over use of truffles, I don't mind truffles, it's just that they're so damn powerful as is that they should be used sparingly not masking the flavors beneath. Another thing is they're use of the propane torch to crisp the skin on my fish.....helloooo....I can taste the propane and it's not very pleasant. And the plate of nigiri that came out was so small that I had bring out my magnifying glass to eat it. I was still hungry after that 8 course meal. Another annoying thing was the neon lit interior, the colored lights kept changing every 10 seconds, how annoying when trying to eat. I felt like I was in that 70's movie Logan's Run, eating my last meal and getting ready to go to the carousel to be reborn except I had the urge to escape to the outside. The only plus was the knowledgeable and attentive staff. Morimoto wasn't there that night and I'm not sure how often he is so I'm not sure if things would've been different, lets just say he wouldn't have gotten my verdict on Iron Chef.
