    Not really a bar menu, i.e., served only at the bar. The tuna tarte is my fave...and don't leave without having the hazelnut dacquiose dessert...heavenly!

      The bar menu is great. My faves are:

      Upside down tuna tarte
      Hamachi tartare
      Egg in a jar
      Coffee caramel dome

          The house made liverwurst is insanely good especially if you are having a beer with it. Egg in a jar is a MUST have.

            Had the hamachi, egg in a jar, foie gras, upside down tuna tarte. All were excellent. Martinis weren't bad either.
