Stag Dining Group: Not Quite Underground, But Still a Feast

Stag Dining Group's two chefs, Jordan Grosser and Ted Fleury, who've worked at restaurants like Campton Place, Winterland, and Alembic (where Fleury is still chef), cooked more rustic fare at the dinner than at their restaurants. But it had a level of polish I didn't often encounter during the heyday of the secret supper. And no communal table at a restaurant can bring strangers together like an afternoon spent shooting skeet, drinking a lot of rosé, and gorging yourselves on fresh asparagus and grilled quail.
