If you’re reading reviews and trying to decide where to go for Dinner, just put the phone down and go here. The Chef here is an award winning Chef and his food backs it up. Elegant but still down to earth.

Our favorite place to sit is in the furthest most corner 2-top banquette - at the opposite end of the room from the hostess stand. Because it is the corner, it is L-shaped, so it is nice and cozy and feels somewhat private.
