Lucky you :yahoo:
I know a guy who did a stage ( you work for free) there. I also have a Chef friend that ate there. They both said it was the real deal.

I've been there twice. Once in 2006 (where I absolutely loved it - best meal in my life) and again in 2007 (it was disappointing by comparison). A friend had a table in 2008 and asked if I wanted to go but I said no - and my friends - who also love food - said it was truly awful. But another friend went last year and said it was incredible.
