Cold and hungry on a Tuesday afternoon in Evanston? Look what we Found. Todd was a pleasure as our server, his advice on beer selection, snacks and entrees did not disappoint. Tasteful subtlety everywhere, from the music to the decor to the yellow pickled beet...More

I must say the decor and location are both outstanding. Unfortunately, the service was extremely slow, the food was sub-par, and the prices were far above market value. Splenda Status: The establishment does not carry Splenda.

The food was great (Pastrami burger, smoked salmon salad) when it arrived after a 35 minute wait, and then the burger arrived before the salad, and we had not had any intention of sharing. While waiting we asked for a slice of bread, and were...More
