Agape Substance-How is it now

I just read an very recent article in which a bakery owner ,among other things,raved about the many fantastic dishes she had at Agape.
I got the impression this was written after David Toutain left but I could be wrong about this.
Does anyone have an opinion of Agape as it is now,post David?
I did see some negative reviews but I was impressed with the article cited above.

coffee in Beijing

I have searched high and low for very good coffee and have not found it yet.Went to Ocean Grounds and found mediocre over priced coffee in a very pretentious place.Oddly enough,although I don't think much of Starbucks coffee,their espresso is not bad.
You can get good beans and make your own.
