Visited this popular local restaurant in Union Square, NYC. The food was absolutely delicious with us trying oysters from different regions of the USA and as an entree we each had a grilled Maine lobster. Both we could not fault. Service was outstanding, friendly and professional. A must visit establishment. Would definately revisit.
