    I think the party's over in there. It looks pretty slow, at least during lunch.

      I don't know about the party being over, I have been there quite a few times over the last few years, most recently a few months ago. I have always enjoyed the food which I would describe as quality comfort food, such as the braised short ribs, beet salads, etc. Small carefully chosen wine list. Nice desserts. A great neighborhood restaurant in a hood with way too many choices, perhaps.

        I've been a few times for dinner. 2 experiences were really good, the last kind of lackluster. On the other hand, I've always had a great brunch there.

          They've got a pretty solid brunch (though it's no Cookshop or Prune).

            I had brunch there a few weeks ago and it was terrific. I had a chance to sample some of the breakfast and lunch items and everything was good. The only downside was that the space is very small.

              Brunch in the past has been good. A recent dinner was good. Nothing great by any stretch, but a nice neighborhood joint.

              Not worth going out of your way for.

                Deborah is still pretty busy for dinner, but we have generally be able to get a table for 2. I think the food is still great, however the flavors tend to overlap and cut down on the overall variety, in my opinion. Check for fish specials, and the fried calamari are very tender and light.
