They try hard to make the price worth it but the space is difficult for a restaurant to begin with and I assume the rent is too high. Nice bar and the food is good not great.

Long narrow building on two floors with a cool bar on the upper floor. High quality bistro food for brunch. Good service. Convenient to Harvard Square.

Enter the rambunctious, first floor, neighborhood cocktail party. Ascend to the modern, 17-foot wide upstairs dining room to touch and taste the elegant craftsmanship of Chefs Jeremy Sewall and Brian Rae.
