I had dinner at Schwa once, back in November of 2006. Chef Michael Carlson, along with his two kitchen ninjas and dish washer, put out a meal so good and earnest, it was one of my top five that year. It was also one of the toughest reservations to get. Then amidst the accolades and heights of popularity, he closed the doors abruptly in October the day after the now infamous Ferran Adria dinner. Almost as suddenly, Schwa is reopening in February. The first two weeks will go to folks who had reservations canceled, the hoi polloi can book a table from February 15th onward. I'm hopeful that in 2008 I'll get to have meal number two.
