but this one seems to be patronized more than others I have visited, and the food seems a smidgen better. Certainly service is at the same high standard of others in New York City, and cleanliness is superb. Special Summer Sips -- very clever marketing.

Great place for lunch, snacks or tea. Interesting menu with a fair choice of healthy plates. Although the place is consistently busy at lunch the service remains quick and attentive. There are individual tables and a large communal one. The only bothersome issue customers that...More
