  1. We haven't been yet, but different friends have reported good things after lunch visits.

      Thanks. Wife and I walked by there last night. Looks nice. We also noticed that Blackbird, right across the street, has opened. We may try one of them next weekend.

        We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago. The space is nice, good lighting, mainly booths from what I recall. The cocktail menu leaned heavily on "fall-ish" items, which makes sense but none were very appealing to me. We had a chorizo/tilapia skewer dish (I may have these wrong but some fish/some sausage). It was fine, nothing extraordinary (although in fairness, several people who saw us looking at the posted menu outside had positive remarks about the food). We had just eaten elsewhere so did not order anything else. We sat at the bar. The bartender was pleasant. I was not "wowed" but would visit again.

    2. Had a couple apps and drinks here not long after they'd opened. Stellar service, lovely decor. Drinks were great and apps were very tasty. Looking forward to returning for dinner.
