First time here, amazing food, great service and a manager who genuinely cares about what you think. Off the beaten path, perfect for a cozy date or simply a girls night out. Interesting cocktails too.

Great discovery in the Union square neighborhood. This tiny restaurant has it all, romantic decor, great service and delicious food from the deviled eggs sample to the truffled Mac and cheese and the apple galette. We loved it.

This was possibly the poorest meal we had in NYS and one of the most expensive. Waiters weren't terribly friendly but the couple at the table beside us who were conducting an extra marital affair provided enough entertainment !
