A Sorority/Fraternity on the Bowery. The scene is very Meatpacking 2006. But the owners think that they are uber cool. The chef should raise above and have a better venue because the food coming out of the kitchen impresses: Long Beans, chicken butter, steak tartare, hamachi, all = impressive and really nice balance of flavors. The wines are nice but the sommelier needs to quite playing with the saber and the champagne - Serve the customers who are a bit more dignified and not looking for a disney experience, please. Get the chef a serious venue, then lets talk......

Pearl and Ash is awful! Had rudest treatment last night from hostess and manager that I've experienced in 20 years of NYC restaurant going. We had reservations at 8, but were told that the third member of our party could not stand next to us at the bar, where we were buying drinks and his wife was sitting while we waited for a table (although one was open) 20 minutes after our reservation! Wasn't even that packed, and the crowd was all old and dressed like your out of town Aunt would be for a "fancy" place.
