My wife and I went to The Woodfire Grill last Friday. The executive chef, Kevin Gillespie, is now a celebrity after appearing on Top Chef last fall. We both thought the experience was fantastic. My wife does not eat meat, and she usually has to settle for whatever side dishes she can find on a menu, or rely on the cleverness of the chef to prepare something off-menu. At Woodfire we both got the 5-course tasting meal and were assured that hers would be appropriately vegetarian. It was one of the best meals we have had. Her dishes were tasty, interesting, unusual, and certainly fit in the category of "never had anything like it." Mine were also wonderful. They don't tell you ahead of time what the tasting menu will be, so each course is a surprise. They were all pleasant surprises. Two of my dishes were salted a bit more than I am used to, but not to the point where it was overwhelming. With the amuse bouche and the mid-meal "kitchen's surprise" it ended up being 7 courses. Each course was small, but by the end of the meal we were quite full.

The staff is great and the overall experience was very pleasant.

And we got our picture with Kevin.

We had to make reservations about 6 weeks in advance. The place has become very popular since Top Chef aired. It is also in the $$$$ category. Main course dishes are about $30 apiece and the tasting menu was $65 each, plus drinks. I opted for the wine pairings, which were all excellent. We ended up spending close to $100 a person. If you stick with the regular menu you could probably hold it down to $50 a person.
