This restaurant had excellent food and excellent service. It is not your typical "activity" restaurant. The prices are a bit steep but the food is excellent so it is worth it. I had the salmon blt and it was cooked to perfection. Yum!

Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
