"It is in so many ways a big improvement over the tottering relic it had become before its previous owner lost it to bankruptcy. Back now with its original caretakers, the Mink family, third-generation owner Sam Mink, 33, has recast it boldly into modern form, from decor changes to draw energy and a youthful crowd, to a bright young staff that knows its oysters, a quality cocktail bar, beer and wine list, and a kitchen that updates the classics with seasonal ingredients and a lighter touch."
