Went to Chow and had a great dinner.
I really like the way all the menu items, food, wine list, cocktails are all in one menu book.
The new paintings on the wall are superb and give a very powerful ambiance to the room.
We went early and the room filled up as the night went on.
We had some cocktails to start and the whole cocktail list is super. The server let us know the cocktail take time (they were still quick) but I like waiting for well crafted delicious drinks. Ours were smooth and balanced.
The food was very well presented, the dishes exactly as described and the flavor and texture contrasts well planned and executed.
Dessert was fun and playful (the chocolates were gobbled up instantly) and their after dinner drink selection was impressive (if you like bourbon, and I do, then hit up the bar for a great list).
Service was attentive, and personable. The right questions were asked and timing of delivery and clearing between courses, both for food and drinks was very good.
All around, Chow is a great restaurant that we'll continue to frequent. From the staff to the room (flowers on each table, candles lit as the evening got darker, and no salt and pepper on the tables - bold but appreciated) and the unpretentious caring attitudes it's a great package worthy of your time and well earned bucks.
