Trendy atmosphere, asian fusion tapas. Can't go wrong. Less expensive than anticipated, which was great!

Food was creative with an asian flair. Drinks - really fun cocktail menu. Guys sit at the bar- bar tender is a babe. Lots of attractive couples. Go early and get your name on list and get a txt when table is open.

Very small locale, excellent tapas, skilled bartender, and relatively well priced given the unusual fare. Menu changes frequently based on what they buy and what is locally available. Would go back. Found their food far more interesting and affordable than the higher end hotels in...More
