Eduardo was a wonderful server who kept the mimosas flowing! The food was phenomenal, and for $37, you get all you can eat items from the brunch menu and all you can drink mimosas, bloody marys (that were actually pretty excellent), and well drinks. We...More

Think small plates of Mediterranean delights and you’ll arrive at Agora. This lively spot offers a nice range of “mezze” — Turkish, Lebanese and Greek — and cocktails. We sampled the calamari, which was really excellent, and the octopus, also outstanding. There’s a wide range...More
