  1. Good spot. Good food and drinks, but small.

      Could you do a review? I'm totally unfamiliar with the place...

        It was a while ago that we ate there, and just remember liking the place (food/drink). I think there are some reviews on CH if you search. Next time we go, I'll do a write up.

    2. We went for the husband's birthday last week. The inside was indeed, as reported elsewhere, TINY! But the day we went was nice enough that the outdoor patio was open. Arriving at 6ish on a Thursday, there were plenty of tables.

      Cocktails were original and excellent. We had a cheese and meat board (great! but the bread was only so so) roasted cauliflower with tahini garlic sauce (cauliflower was not overcooked as it would be in most restaurants; sauce was tasty), duck with polenta (meh - not bad, but didn't measure up to the rest of what we had there) and ribs with mashed potatoes or something (very good!).

      The service was super attentive and pretty friendly.

      I'd go back for the cocktails and cheese/charcuterie board, especially on a day I could sit outside. Dinner was better than average, but I wouldn't rush back for it.

        Whoops. It was a Friday, not a Thursday that we went there, FWIW.

      2. I've been a couple times with a friend that lives in the area. We really like it as a great neighborhood hang out spot. It's teeny tiny (although in good weather I think they might open up a few tables outside).

        We usually get some cheese, cured meats and pate to nibble on while trying out a few glasses of wine. I wish it was closer to my apartment because it's just a nice hang out spot---especially if you can get there early on a weekday or mid-day on a Saturday or Sunday.

        1. Thoughts on brunch here??

          1. I've been here a couple of times, its right on my block and it's adorable. The food is decent, I've really enjoyed the scallops, pork belly, and salad but was rather disappointed by their "cubano" which didn't seem special at all and their risotto which I thought was too al dente and rahter boring. I still love it, great vibe, good quality in general, I think it's planning on expanding soon as well based on some signage next door...hopefully this will make it a little easier to get into!
