This visit was my first with their new format for 2017 with just one seating for the evening. Timing-wise, it worked best for me as dinner probably wasn’t going to run as late as the late seating used to run. However, the price went up with the new format and the experience was no longer BYOB (for free).
With the new format, there were going to increase the number of courses, upgrade the course ingredients and slow the pace of the experience. Also, they recently received their liquor license and now had a wine list (by the bottle only). It wasn’t going to work for me to buy one of their bottles, so I just opted for tea. I ended up being seated next to another solo diner who did order a bottle, and he shared a glass with me, which was very nice.
The menu is not normally presented at the beginning. I just placed the photo up front to allow viewing of the wine choices and food at the same time.

It is also with a great deal of sadness that I have to report that 42 grams is now closed. It was one of my favorite restaurants anywhere, and I will miss the food and the people that made each dining experience an enjoyable one. There is an independent film that made its premier in March called “Courses” that documents the history of Sous Rising/42 grams. See it if you can.
