Feinberg School of Medicine, 20 guests. 4/28/14

OMG, it was AMAZING!! Not that anyone was surprised of course! Best lamb I ever had, and people RAVED about the food. And of course the service is always second to none. Thank you so much for your flexibility!! I, for one, am looking for an excuse to come back to the have the lamb when I am not on the clock. My husband would probably never leave the restaurant if he tried it! Cheers!
