We really enjoyed our dinner at Persephone. The chicken with pomegranate seeds was excellent - a wonderful mix of flavors. While I know that splitting entrees may not be ideal from the restaurant's point of view, they were very kind as to prepare separate plates for us when we did split the entree and the salad. It was the right amount of food for us, and was presented beautifully. We do really appreciate it. Everything was wonderful and we will definitely be back. More
