The menu options are fun. It is hard to decide on which dishes to order. Friendly neighborhood feel. Sometimes crowded. Nice servers. A great place to gather with friends. I have never been disappointed. So catch a movie at the Spectrum and have dinner on Delaware Avenue. Enjoy.

Food is creative. Food is delicious. Service is excellent. Parking is easy. It is our go-to restaurant. We have tried many others but never found the same quality or consistency that NWBB delivers.

I have eaten here 6 or 7 times and always had really good food and fantastic service. You MUST call ahead or have reservations since it is very popular.

I have gone to this restaurant a few times. My guests and I enjoyed it completely. There is a great variety of dishes offered- some moderately expensive, some very inexpensive. The preparation was always solid. The service was exemplary each visit. I will be back. A perfect place before or after a movie at the Spectrum next door.

The waitress Julia was fantastic! I have been on a Ramen kick lately and she said the Ramen special has been on the menu for two days and received glowing reviews so far. In my experience ramen at places that aren't specifically known for their Ramen isn't very good, this however was an exception. The miso Ramen was delicious, and... More

This tiny restaurant has a changing menu offering seasonal specialty dishes. Although some exotic dishes miss the mark the staples are very well prepared and presented. The restaurant is charming and upbeat. We find that it is sometimes hard to hear and the tables are very close together so this is not for intimate dining and conversation if you go... More

A most interesting menu. Moroccan, Mediterranean, and American cuisine. Lite fare, as well as full dinners. Vegan options available. The quinoa crusted asparagus appetizer was delicious! Very attentive and helpful staff. A full beer and wine selection. Nice ambiance, outdoor dining available. Off street parking. Going to add this restaurant to my favorites list!
