  TRU is AMAZING! From the contemporary dining room, to the amazing staff, to the food, dining at TRU is an experience. This is an expensive meal which foodies will savor and remember. The staff is knowledgeable and approachable -- contrasted with the staff at Charlie Trotter's which are stuffy and pretentious. Each dish at TRU is a little piece of delicious art. Desert is killer and the staff will bring many little bites in addition to what you order. The entire experience at TRU is amazing; it is the perfect place to celebrate something special. Be prepared to spend $150 to $300 per person....   Read More
