This is a great place for a casual meal with friends or family. The French Onion Soup is great and the burgers too. Easy to get to, a block from the T.

Any bar that gives out a free glass of champers to everyone in there gets a thumbs up by me, what a lovely unexpected touch. DJ was superb and service quick and effective with a smile, nothing was too much trouble.

Pizza, burgers, sandwiches, baguettes and a lively crowd scene is what you get here. Service is prompt and efficient and the menu offerings are perfect for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. The pizzas are interesting with somewhat unique flavors. Well worth doing.
