Good food, nice atmosphere- feels like a long-time old Brooklyn dive that has survived by adapting to new Brooklyn ways - without selling out. It’s not amazing, just solid when you haven’t booked or casual when you want to relax for a meal.

We liked the atmosphere and the staff. The menu offered standard bistro fare. The shrimp ceviche and escargot were good. The steak frites was not an impressive cut of meat - even cooked rare it was chewy and not tender and disappointing. There were other...More
