It took away my desire to even read it, let alone... More

Had a business lunch. They have introduced a new formula. We had 4 small dishes. Two appetizers and two small main courses. Chef's surprise menu. Which tasted just great. The restaurant is located in a great park. Service was very friendly. I would recommend this to my best friends.
