Mood: extremely casual, intimate setting looking for seasonal foods and classics renowned
Tastes Like: fresh, locally sourced… a real dine in treat. really enjoyed the white bean bruschetta for our little starters. The olive oil was very light, rustic tasting and devine. The hangar steak was cooked beautifully in a gorgonzola butter sauce, accompanied with potatoes and escarole. I decided to go to with the sauteed sweetbreads…my first time ordering as a whole entree as opposed to just appetizers. I think it was too much for me… usually when I order it in the form of an appetizer, I can’t get enough…. Ordering it as an entree was too much for me…though I still enjoyed it. By the end, I just got sick of it.
Must Haves: n/a
Stay Away: n/a
Ambiance: Extremely tiny, very casual setting, a few seats at the bar… narrow strip with tables on both ends. If you’re lucky like us, there are exactly two tables by the big open windows. Score!
Service: Helpful, funny, kind hearted.
Rating: 3 stars
Caveat: Call to score a res or you can end up waiting up to an hour on the weekend.
