My partner and I, Brooklynites, love the food here. Made with care and precision, it rarely falters. We prefer to eat at the bar. The chicken liver mousse is excellent, the drinks well-mixed, the complementary plate of house-made pickles, bread & olive oil delicious. The...More

The food is prepared with love. Seasonal and high-quality ingredients are the norm here. Great range of wines too. The service is excellent. It's a warm cozy atmosphere with great music and mood lighting. I often go two or three times a week.
