The Dutch: Preview of a Great Restaurant Review to Come
The sprightly decor can be enjoyed in a more sedate ambiance during lunchtime and early-dinner hours. The rectangular space (formerly Solea) is broken up into more intimate areas by thick white brick columns. Walls are white brick too, and tables are blond wood It's a llight, clean-lined, contemporary-rustic look: IKEA meats Martha Stewart. A bustling bar stands at one end of the room, a marble seafood bar at the other. Between is a continuous ebb-and-flow of waitstaff, diners coming and going, and some people just passing through to see and be seen. A patio seduces more subtly, with foliage and softly glowing lanterns.
If the Dutch really were a party, it would be a well-hosted one with very good food and drink.
Stay tuned for the full review, due tomorrow...
