Tom Douglas Summer Camp is barely over and though I'm still digesting, I'm already looking forward to August's lunch. 

I just got the thumbs-up from The Coterie Room, the third project by Dana Tough and Brian McCracken.

Their first two "bars" (Spur Gastropub and Tavern Law) have picked off awards like Gayot's Top-5 Rising Chefs, Food & Wine's People's Best Chefs, GQ's Best 25 Bars in America, Conde Nast Traveler's Hot List of the world's best restaurants, The Daily Beast's Hot New Restaurant, among many others.

The Coterie Room is a full-on restaurant, boosting American classic dishes into the stratosphere using molecular techniques. Not for gimmick or show like so many lesser joints, but with deft, almost invisible, application. And the results are incredible. 

Quick update: I just received the draft menu from The Coterie Room. Here's what they're thinking:
