I can cook some great stuff at home-THIS is what I want when I go out. A stunning variety of "every day" ingredients turned into something spectacular in both taste and presentation. Great service and a very good wine list.

I am sure they would allow you in. But it is a very upscale restaurant with prices that match. If it is your nature, you might not be comfortable.
