Someone called me crazy when I told them I'd given The Dutch another chance. Perhaps so. It was prompted by a couple of things. The news that Andrew Carmellini is set to launch a French operation in the Chinatown Brasserie space was one reason The Dutch was on my mind again.
The other was that I needed a fall back when I failed -- as I did -- to get into Perla. I was horribly disappointed by The Dutch when I first visited. First impressions are sometimes right.
