This is the sort of place where you not only talk to your neighbors, but end up eating their food (the ginormous chocolate mousse pictured). Uneven but well intentioned service did not diminish our experience, starting with an amuse bouche of radishes and chunks of parmiggiano reggiano, grilled rainbow trout at a very decent $16, and the kooky aforementioned vat of chocolate mousse served with spatulas. Hmmm. Tip: skip the sauce that ruins the otherwise crispy potatoes that come with the entrees. Visit the beer garden for a round of ping pong after dinner. Very sceney, but have to say, I love it here.
