    Deep and dark, pale and delicate, loud and bright…each [color] made exuberant on the plate by careful positioning of every bit of every thing.

    Which leads to the service, which is nuanced yet warm, smart yet effusive where appropriate. I watched head waiter Carl Wentzel match the tone of each table in the place, switching from wry to frostily efficient to as near to down-home as his South African accent would permit, impeccably.
