Enjoyed a fantastic evening celebrating a special birthday. The food and service were both of an exceptional standard. Would highly recommend one of the tasting menus with the accompanying wine flight. We will definitely be returning as soon as we can.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,

heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
