A sister restaurant of West Egg Cafe (love that place) over in Howell Mill, The General Muir, led by Executive Chef Todd Ginsberg, is a Jewish deli type concept that is a little over a week old. Been meaning to go check out the eatery as the reviews from friends were quite promising. My personal experience with the service and ambiance was quite good and the food was simply lovely. If you can, order the chopped chicken liver because that thing is delicious. Probably meant more as a 4 person appetizer than 2, but wow, I think next time I’m going to eat a whole plate of it for lunch. Yes, it is that good.

Some fun facts I learned from Sonia Chopra’s article at Eater.com, the eatery got its name per the USS General C. H. Muir. During the aftermath of World War II, the owner’s mother and grandmother, both Holocaust survivors, were brought to the United States thanks to this ship; the name is to show homage to the vessel of their salvation. I really admire restaurants that give thought to the name. It adds so much depth and character, gives a sense of connection once you learn its history. A lovely place. I will be back.

After a quick pre-dinner dinner at Barley Swine, we met up with some new food eating friends, Valerie Masterman and Jason Petitte for a trip through some of Uchi’s tasty offerings. What a meal. Everything I had was great. Especially the Wagyu hot rock dish! I think anything that is table side and/or do-it-yourself (to an extent) is so gratifying and entertaining. Before I come back, I definitely want to first check out their sister restaurant, Uchiko.
