    woohooo excellent news John! did you see the new menu, what do you think of it?

    I'm a bit grumpy that they've changed a couple of the classics but will be interested to try some of the new dishes

    Yes I saw the menu Keith and quite frankly I'm not overly impressed. For some reason I thought there would be a lot more choices on it, though I think I've already narrowed it down to two.

    I'm sad that they've changed out the oak fired filet of beef, I loved the bbq sauce. Really wish they'd kept that at least as an option (not a huge fan of tomato and it already sounds to me like they're overdoing tomato on the dish ! - Heirloom Tomato Risotto, Marinted Baby Vine Tomatoes, Basil, Tomato Butter)

    Anyone have any advice on the best time to book an ADR if you'd like to experience the fireworks at 9:00pm?

    inside at your table or outside on the skywalk?

    Basically, people will usually book for 7/7.30 in anticipation of being seated for a 9pm wishes show. Pretty much no tables free up between 8-9:30 because everyone is waiting till after the fireworks.

    So, if you want to be at your table for the fireworks, try a reservation between 7 and 8. You can of course still get up from the table, ask the server to pause, and go out to watch the fireworks on the walkway anyway, so the table you get doesnt OVERLY matter.

    Alternatively, you can book for 9-9:30 and say something like "I'm going to watch the fireworks out on the walkway so dont worry about seating us until after the fireworks, but we'd like a table by the window" That way you almost certainly won't be seated until after the fireworks but may have a quieter meal on a table with a better view.

    I'm seeing two different menus posted. This is the one I was looking at and it doesn't mention the tomato version.

    Well, if that is the new one then my choices get narrowed even further. I like the old one better. I don't do the filet as a rule. Off the new one I will probably pick the Halibut.
