Veneto to check out the work of Solomon Siegel, I found this ad in this week's Monday Magazine.
I have issues with Veneto because the name and the style of food they claim make not sense in connection with the food they serve. The food was decent enough, but I had some issues with it as well. I suspect it would be worth checking out again as it could very well have matured. I know, I have a very picky standard when it comes to fine dining. They also suffered as I went to Poppy in Seattle almost at the same time.
Solomon Siegel operated Solomon's at the location of the Herald Street Cafe. It was a cocktail bar done right, done really right. He closed it done, I suspect because this town really is not ready for upscale dining and drinks. We are after all a provincial town ;-)
He introduced us to Fentiman's tonic water. They also do ginger beer, cola, lemonade and more and are very much worth finding and drinking..
