Creative menu that changes often enough to keep people who just can't stop coming back (like me :)) interested. Delicious small plates that are great to share, well cooked, and a little different than what you can get elsewhere.

We ordered several different small plates to share - each were a unique collection of flavors, and the diverse options made for a nice late dinner. The BLT lettuce wraps were a surprisingly complex dish — highly recommended! But the service — lacking from start to finish. Our waiter spent the entire evening chatting with a couple friends at a table nearby - Never checked on us to see how we were doing or if we wanted another drink, etc, and we had to chase down a different wait person to get us a box to bring home the extra food and the check.
