Manohla Moonlighting at Lou?

It seems we weren't the only ones excited about the prospect of having a new local wine bar move into the neighborhood, but more importantly, knowing that said wine bar also carried the possibilty of a Manohla Dargis sighting. As one reader reveals:

Saw your earlier item on new wine bar Lou and the connection to Manohla Dargis. Went there last night (3/31) and the one waitress was overwhelmed by the crowd. About 1/2 way thru our meal, two women who were obviously not trained waitstaff started helping out with clearing tables and what not. One looked quite a bit like Ms. Dargis, but it seems hard to believe....Would love to get confirmation/speculation from others...Can you ask the peanut gallery? Regardless of who it was, her commentary was quite humorous "I'm never sure if I'm supposed to talk to the customers when I take their plates or not..." "Can I take that, or would you like to keep fondling it for awhile?" (in reference to a wine glass). Anyway, it's a nice place in need of more waitstaff...

Sounds like Manohla to us, but we'll open it up for further investigation. Anyone else have Manohla serve you salumi?
