Try the mussels, try the Chicken Club sandwich if it's on the menu, Close your eyes and point to anything on the menu. Chances are you'll enjoy it. A small, curated wine selection rounds out inexpensive, fine food.

Misha is NO GOOD. A truant I tell you! That taunts you and entices you. With everything on the menu. Charcuterie was delightful and so was our steaming bowl of mussels! But the wine selection can't be beat, Misha's attentiveness and sass are crave worthy......More

nice place, but their breakfast didn't measure up to their pricing. Lots and lots of grease, and it wasn't enjoyable taste either.
