This was our destination for Sunday brunch. My friend and I each had a different salad. I had the peach with goat cheese and she had the fava salad.Service was slow but the food was good.

Dropped by for a lovely brunch. I had the peach and goat cheese salad and my friend had the fava bean salad. We both enjoyed our meals.

We had a family brunch in this neighborhood gem. We loved it! The garden tables are lovely in this little spot and food is delicious. Each dish was excellent and the fresh squeezed oj in mimosa was grand.

I have been tempted by the passing dishes of Bistecca (grilled skirt steak with roasted red onions and potatoes) but the Norma with roasted eggplant, tomato, mozzarella and pesto pulls... More

Can't Really Understand Why Reviewers Give This Place An Average Of 4 Stars. Been There A Few Times...Nothing That Special As Far As The FOod Goes...The Service Is Spotty As Best And Fairly Snooty At Times. Aurora In Manhattan Id Far Superior In Every Way...Management Does Make A difference
