Next Sunday's review



Next week I revisit the Brass Elephant in Mount Vernon. It's been given new life with a new chef, Andrew Maggitti, and a new cuisine. The menu is now Italian once again.

To see what I think of the changes, please read my review next Sunday in the Arts & Life Today section. And if you've eaten there since Chef Maggitti came on board, let us know what you think by posting below.

The Brass Elephant is one of those restaurants that I have no excuse for not visiting. I lived on the 900 block of St Paul street for years, and while I made it into Tusks a few times, I never ate downstairs.

Glad to hear that they have gone back to Italian cooking and that they have a new chef. The last time(for restaurant week of '07) I ate there with 3 others we all agreed that the quality of the food had gone way down and the meue was uninteresting from the days when you could always count on getting good food there. We also had service issues with the wait staff and I hope that has improved as well. I will be looking forward to your review on Sunday.
