Margot's, Open for Dinner

I'm eager to know who has tried Margot Cafe and Wine Bar for dinner. Ever since I discovered Margot's, I've been mildly irritated that they close at 6, just after I finish my cheese plate and am ready for some more good food. They've been talking about opening for dinner since September... I've called every week to check... and it's finally happened! Salads, pastas and appetizers are VERY reasonably priced. Unfortunately, all entrees are over 20$ except the rice and beans, but oh well. That cheese plate is still a great, delicious deal. And, I know I'm crazy, but I cried out gleefully when I saw they have roasted brussels sprouts as a side!!
Margot's has a great wine list. Parking is easy; it's in the Bulls Head Shopping Center. It's relatively small... probably seats just over 30... but there is plenty of space between tables. Margot's hours are a little patchy, which is bad for people like me who can't keep things straight. I THINK they are closed Monday, open 8-3 on Sunday. I think they're only open for dinner Th-Sat. During the week, T-W, they have the 7:70 to 6 hours they used to have every day. That is probably all wrong, so... I'd call ahead if you doubt me.

I want to know how a place like this stays open without a dinner crowd. With obsene rent rates and a closing time of 6 pm, how do they draw enough of a lunch, early dinner business to stick around.

THere a bunch of places (deli's) that I think could stay open later, and they would make a killing.

But hey, that is just me.

Yeah, I have heard that shopping center has high rents- several businesses have recently closed. But I think they are busy for dinner, and I've gone for Sunday brunch and they're busy... but I see what you mean. What delis are you thinking of? I've heard Giovanni's (on 4th st?) is great but I've never been!

I've been there recently, and they have several dishes under $20. Check it out again...
