What a way to welcome a new restaurant to town by claiming it is opening in a "cursed" site. Shame on freelance writer Patti Woods for such baseless reporting. I am particularly offended by her citing Sarabande restaurant in the same sentence with Greenhouse Grill and The Fairfield Spot. Sarabande was a very successful restaurant for many years and as a longtime resident here, I patronized the restaurant numerous times.

I could always count on Sarabande's creative menu with very original entrees as well as the restaurant's professional table service. I and my luncheon or dinner companions were always treated with utmost respect . We never felt rushed, despite the fact that Sarabande was a small intimate boutique restaurant. Actually, that was its charm.
