Thank you Chef!

Drove 5 hours to enjoy an amazing brunch with Chef Andrew. He did not disappoint! My party of 6 had the chefs table and it was awesome! I had duck hash and doughnuts. My best advice is to come early, order everything and enjoy a pot of coffee with friends!

There wasn't much choice on the menu, but the food was good albeit in very small portions. It can get quite noisy so not great for a romantic meal. The staff were lovely and attentive. Definitely overpriced.

This place was recommended by a friend who lives in Brooklyn and we had an excellent meal there. The staff were so beautiful you imagine they could all be resting actors waiting for the call. Welcoming and nice décor. Lovely food, top prices.

The place was really busy & we thought we would have a problem getting a table. A wait of a couple of minutes & we were seated. Its a great friendly restaurant & the food was excellent. It was a welcome change to the more faceless Manhattan places we had been before. Would definitely go back.

We visited mid week. The atmosphere was the perfect mix of relaxed yet buzzy. We hadn't booked a table so opted to have dinner at the bar. The bartender was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. We'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Let me preface this by saying I was a regular at this restaurant, but will never return again after the way one of the owners Tamer Hamawi treated me and with such rudeness and calculated disregard. When we arrived, we were offered a table and I asked to sit at the bar because the bartenders are nice and I like... More

The ambience is terrific, the room is lovely and the place was jumping. Great wine, delicious food and great service We ate small share... More

Came here for brunch after eyeing it for a long time and never having the opportunity to go. The space is beautiful, with lots of indoor plants and an a carefully designed, though fairly standard, Brooklyn antiquish look. The service was also very attentive. However, the food was very uneven. The shrimp and grits were bland, and the grits too... More
