Brian left molly's about 3 or 4 years ago. The new chef (Timothy Au, I think) was there when you had the recent off-line. The food there was hit or miss under chef Au, so I guess that it should't count as a favorite that recently closed. Try 1500 ocean if you want to get an idea of what Molly's was once like. I thought that Chive closed within the last year, but I might be mistaken. We ate there last year before a Padres game.
