The venerable chef likes the word “comfort,” too. He’s loaded the menu here with “comfort food,” including pastas, beef tenderloin, a rack of lamb, and The Mark Cheeseburger.

If your wallet’s feeling the same, get in quick and make your reservation. And don’t forget to come back here and give us a play-by-play of your meal.
We love to eat vicariously through others. Keeps our wallets and waistlines slim.
