    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.

      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!
