New restaurant in Kensington with good food and drinks. I had a hamburger which was great. My friends had chicken and mashed potatoes which were also great. The drinks were cheap and not bad. Our waiter was so nice. A great restaurant.

I really don't want to tell you about this restaurant because I don't want it to get too crowded. It is truly a hidden gem. They have great drinks, amazing menu, fabulous service, tucked away off the beaten path. It is worth the trip!

Upscale neighborhood spot where you can enjoy a game and a drink with friends and strike up a conversation with other patrons. Solid selection of beers, both daft and canned/bottled.

Our modern Kensington American restaurant draws inspiration from world travels, offering riffs on comfort favorites like steak frites and fish tacos, along with brunch, homemade desserts, cocktails and whiskeys by the "dram." We also cater in our “Absinthe” room or in your home, office or favorite venue.
