Looking for some feedback. Working on an icon for a restaurant who's name begins with an "e".
1. Do these look like the letter "e"?
2. Do you see the spoon in the counter of the "e"?
3. Is the leaf (abstract representation of rosemary, basil, thyme, etc) too cliché?
Thanks for the help.

Yes Yes No
Looks great sir, definitely Yes, Yes, No – really nice.
This is a win, I think it works well; especially in conjunction with the restaurant's name it will unmistakably be an 'e'.
Didn't see the "e" until you mentioned it. The spoon reads clear. The leaf looks good. I like the narrow version the best.
Prefer the circle. Didn't immediately see the spoon, but it DOES read as a spoon and maybe seeing it in context would make it more obvious. Kind of cool that it's that subtle and ok IMO that everyone doesn't see it immediately. Don't think the leaf element is cliche.
Really dig it.
Agree with everyone else. The narrower version is great man!
Again, Y, Y, N. my favourite is the more circular variant.
I originally saw the e and the plant, but didn't see a spoon, just a normal e counterspace. Could you curve the transition from the bowl of the spoon the handle, would that be cheesy? Yeah I think the condensed e works best.
I saw the spoon and plant right away. I actually didn't catch the "e" immediately. BUT I do think that in the context of the accompanying type, that would solve itself. Nice work, there.
The E's on right read more clearly than the left side ones.
I see the spoon because you mentioned it but might not have if you didn't. Maybe the spoon's handle could be thicker?
Cliché? No. Suitable. Yes.
Btw, since when do we use Dribbble for anything other than ego stroking. Get with the program, Matt. #jk
Right side. Strong side. But seriously the right side works well on all account IMO.
Not too cliché. I saw the spoon immediately (before I knew it was for a restaurant) but didn't see the "e" until you mentioned it
Left side (skinnier version) looks more like a measuring spoon. Think the rounder one reads as a spoon spoon.
I instantly got the "e" and the spoon with the leaves. Before I read the comments I thought it was maybe an all natural supplement or medicine because of the shape of the spoon, but that's just my take. I think the circular one works better, It just seems more balanced to me. In context, I think this will be very successful. Simple, balanced, original.
This is really helpful. Thanks, all.
@Darren Booth Yeah, I kind of forget I have this list of group of super-talented designers / illustrators at my disposal. Don't worry; I'll post some finished work soon so everyone can say "Cool!" and "Love it!", and then I'll feel good about myself again.
Didn't see the 'e' until you mentioned it, but definitely saw everything else. I think either way it's a nice little surprise for people to find. Great job!
Agree with @Tyler Deeb - Excellent work! I love it.
The right one is very good Matt, for me it is clear enough.
I saw the letter 4.
definitely reads, especially on the right, but in context the condensed version could work as well. super beautiful mark
it's so interesting to read all the comments of people who immediately saw the spoon/plant and those that saw the plant/'e' first. I was the ladder and only noticed the spoon after reading comments and seeing it but all that aside it's a super clean mark and I prefer the 'e' on the right :)!
I didn't see the "e" until you said it. But then i saw it clear as day. Brilliant.
Right is a lot stronger than the left.
Yes Yes No, and I prefer the left...
@Matt Lehman You better.
