THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Grenache Restaurant Review

: Finally, it would appear that Grenache, a restaurant that never quite lived up to its buzz, is hitting its stride. The interior resembles an art gallery, and the crowd is mostly people who look as if they would visit one, dressed well, if casually, or in post-business day attire. Service can be erratic, ranging from good to invisible, but seems to be moving in the right direction. The menu, once consisting of reinterpretations of Mediterranean dishes, has evolved into one offering today's eclectic American cuisine. And the wine list is unquestionably the best in town, thanks to its parent, the wine store next door. Strong recommendations for the appetizer assortment, which lets the chef vamp with whatever's around. There is interesting treatment of seafood, but the house shows its hand best with things like game and duck, and the latter may arrive sauced with Godiva chocolate, not quite a mole but deep and mysterious and non-sweet. Until it catches on again, this is a very fine place for a quiet, intimate dinner.
