We highly recommend this restaurant if you're in this neighbourhood. The food was delicious and full of flavour. We had two glasses of different red wines and both were fantastic. The staff were friendly and attentive.

They went out of their way to prepare a special meal and beverages. The filet mignon was exceptional and the empanadas were delghtful. The food was prepared with panache. Well worth it.

brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most

contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
