    A unique dining experience with very good, creative food and quirky ambiance. Add a table and tablecloth to the butcher shop and at night it becomes “The Charles”. Needs some fine tuning on the ambiance to pull it off for the price (e.g. fresh flatware after each course). With just 4 of us dining it was cozy. It would have been nice if the chef had greeted us after the meal. Our favorites were beef tartare and halibut with seafood. It changes daily and you don’t know what it will be until the day of your reservation. The panna cotta was a good choice after a robust meal. I could not it the last course and took it home. Could not add my photos.

    Lovely in theory, but not executed as the experience we anticipated and for the price, which was higher than we were initially told, we were hoping to love it and make it an annual outing.

    I realize I wrote my comments off my other e-mail address. It was wonderful- but in retrospect should have asked who wouldn’t go for beef tartare… and one other thing that most ate but two didn’t. it was a waste as a result but will know to substitute next time. Checking on the date of June 2nd. I’ll check w/open table as to availability.
