Good food. Courteous service. Interesting facility. Bank conversion very rare. Nice! Duck entree a bit fatty. Duck-fried rice was very good.

We wanted to try their new menu, although we were happy to see some items remained, especially their Short Ribs dinner. We had an excellent waiter, whose suggestion of their special - Stuffed Pork Chop Milanese was incredible. Very cool re-use of an early 1900's...More
