Someone told me this was a pretty good place, couldn't find a website for it, has anyone been?

    My fiance and I went about a month ago. We shared the BBQ pork spring rolls, sliders (a special), seared snapper and braised lamb shank; for dessert, I had the cheese plate, and he had the creme brulee. Everything was very good, except for the creme brulee. The BBQ spring rolls were especially delicious, nice and crunchy, tangy and smoky.

    The space doesn't really have that pub look and feel to it, so it's hard to think of it as a gastropub really; but it is a nice restaurant. We plan to go back sometime.

      Laban has awarded Slate 2 bells though noting a certain lack of coherent theme and nonappeal to "destination"diners.... I think I'll give it a try though!

        LaBan gives everything two bells anymore and it is getting very boring.
