      Yeah went last week. Was a very awkward meal, service wise, just... Awkward, friendly, just awkward. Food was good, but not amazing. I think I would always perfer Hecho en Dumbo to here, but this place is across the st for me, so that helps. We had a good chicken dish, good shrimp mole dish. and some other stuff.

      Maybe they will hit their stride, I just did not get the vibe for the neighborhood, and I think between some other places nearby, they are going to have trouble. Hecho, tacombi, snack dragon even. This space has been unlucky, we will see.

      Sorry, I write disjointed posts, it was ok, give it a shot, maybe the front of house has settled down a bit by now...
