• There are six kinds of oysters. You probably won't even need to read the menu's tasting remarks to know the Coromandel have notes of briny watermelon.
• You can hold court like Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII at the football field-sized communal Grand Table. (When you're wooing Katherine, Catherine, Anne and Anne, you'll retire to one of the snug enclosed booths.)
• The beer list reads like a European travelogue, though you won't mind staying close to home with Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout.
• There are pork rinds, tripe and blood sausage, Crispy Sweetbread Schnitzel and even a ham flight. That's right, a flight of ham.
Yet one juicy tidbit has escaped all the glare: The restaurant is now accepting reservations for Sundays, when it goes entirely prix-fixe with a giant shareable family-style feast. This week, $45 gets you three courses, including porchetta, Spicy Apple Salad and something raspberry tart-ish. Future Sundays may feature a whole roast pig, but no one's saying when.
That's okay, you love a little mystery.
