Don't mean to sound rude, but it was such an overpriced place, and often was mediocre. I quit spending my $$ there last year. I wish them luck w/future ventures and continued luck w/FSC, but glad they closed.

I agree with the first comment.
We really wanted to support the cause, so to speak, but the prices became ridiculous, the quality declined & the service degraded to terrible. We felt as if we were paying for Jesse Cool's kitchen remodel. Talk about a bail out!

I also sincerely wish JZC luck, but will not return to any of her restaurants until we learn that the prices - @ least of a few entrees - go down in price, & the service improves.
