Melange changed hands in January, and new owners Laura and Christopher Wanke are working hard to bring the restaurant to its full potential. The waitstaff is well trained and friendly without being stiff. Desserts are improving--the tray has mercifully disappeared--though not as seasonal as I would prefer them to be. Although the front lounge still drives the operation with its music and longer hours, the Wankes are reinvigorating the dining room with its own special events, lunch, and catering. I'm hoping that with a bit more editing and tweaking of the menu, the food will become as polished and sophisticated as its setting.
