We hate to do this to Terrence Cave, a genuinely nice guy and capable chef, but this Deathwatch dedication is going out to HQ, the bistro he opened in Soho last October. For some, the promise of clam bakes and beer tastings mean excitement. For Eater, all they do is provoke the big bad D-W. It's a neighborhood spot, so menu tweaks and good front of house relations could very well lead to a turn for the better (it did show potential at the outset), but it's going to take some work. Over/under: October, 2007.
