Went here tonight, amazing views of Times Square. Highly recommend the pizza appetizer, really good. Walked by here several times and no idea it was here. Waiters were very attentive, always keeping the drinks full.

Newly renovated and framed by chic, whitewashed décor, our portal to Times Square is bursting with theatric energy and color. Gather at our communal tables and peer out at the bustling world outside our walls. At night, the space transforms with a DJ booth and beats that echo through the night. Let the neon glow light your way to a new sensory experience.
