Located in Nordstrom's department store. I didn't even know such a thing existed anymore, but my sister did. What a treat!! The restaurant itself is beautiful in a zen like way, tucked away in a quiet and peaceful space. The whole menu is small plates of fresh and really tasty food!! We had the lettuce cups with Szechaun glazed chicken... More

This cozy restaurant located in Nordstrom in Burlington Mall is highly recommended. They serve small portion dishes just like Chinese dimsum, but their menu is western dishes. The caramelized chicken wings, meatballs, scallop with risotto, and cod are to die for. Too bad, they don't have the beef dishes that day. The Creme Brûlée is so good.

Went here with my wife and was pleasantly surprised - we ended up going back two days later! Well done Nordstrom - it adds to your image. The food here is tasteful - the chefs know what they are doing. The emphasis is to bring out the flavors of the base ingredients - there is just the right amount of... More

Wide choice of tapas-like small dishes, combined to create a full meal or shared among friends. The range of dishes is extensive and everything we tried was excellent, including desserts. The folks here, oddly placed inside a Nordstrom's store, clearly care a great deal about their guests and the eatery can be recommended for both casual dining and special occasions.... More

This place is not like any other restaurant you will find in a mall! Cozy, different and delicious. You don't feel like you're right next to a bunch of stores. I have only ever tried lunch, but would definitely try for dinner some time. Even their bar looks like a fun place to sit for a quick dinner. This is... More

I've have selfishly never reviewed this place hoping no one else will discover how awesome it is. I want to make sure I can always get a table when I want one! There is not a bad thing on the menu. My friend and I have been here probably 15 times and every time is just as good as the... More

Took the office out for a late lunch. We ordered 3 to 4 plates each, plus dessert plus coffee and lots of wine all around. All for under 50 dollars a person. And the food was exquisite. Somehow the small plates made us feel that we weren't stuffing yourself, despite the fact that we were. All the dishes were well... More

This tapas style restaurant has something for everyone to share. Delicious fresh food (the best crab cakes I've had away from the sea) but definitely a sharing meal, not for hearty appetites. Service was superb! Can't wait to return!

Was so happy to go with 3 other friends/business colleagues for an enjoyable and adventurous dinner! Ask for Stacey, our server who was on her second day - friendly, attentive, and professional, loved her! Food was great - we enjoyed every tapas plate we tried and had 9 or 10 of them, more than plenty with 2 bottles of white... More

Deep inside the Nordstrom's Store at the Burlington Mall is hidden a heavenly surprise -- a delightful little tapas restaurant perfectly suitable for lunch while shopping or as a destination in itself. Every six weeks or so, I lunch with a dear friend who lives about an hour south of Burlington. I live about an hour north of Burlington, and... More
