I was told about this place from a friend and he could not have been more right about this place. We can not wait to return for dinner. The cocktails were excellent and we had the rillete appetizer and it was sensational. Returning for sure.

This restaurant was recommended by a local bartender and she was right on. Small but the food and vibe are fun. We did small plates and tried a few items on the menu and all were superb. Great draft beer list too!
