Food was great, but came here for the experience. They slice a whole chunk of cheese to what you order - was very cool. Burger was good too!

Food and service was great. Cheese lover paradise. Nice atmosphere. Small and quaint. Should make reservations if you plan on four or more people. Worth the trip.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
