The three course bar menu is always amazing. Had a great time,as you always meet interesting folks here. I first ate here the first week nicholas opened, and still come back all the time. Craig, in the bar, really knows his wines. Truly the best.

We wanted somewhere nice to take my daughter for her last night visiting, but also wanted to stay casual. Dinner at the bar fulfilled it all. Great food, outstanding service and friendly diners at the bar.

They have relaxed the dress code to business casual, no shorts but many guys will be wearing sport coats here without ties.

Wish I could offer specifics, but we ate there only once & it was a few months ago. I recall that their online menu was pretty close to what was actually offered (not always the case), so you should take a look at their... More
