except for the apple pie, of course, which is very good.
There is ONE important feature about new openings, they seem to jump to the front of the line almost invariably for a rainfalll of 'raving revues, every one more superlative than the previous one. Then, nature takes its course, they can't control the incoming, independent reviews, some more critical than others.
My only visit was a big disappointment, 1st, from the ultra limited choice, which I suspect was intentional as the waitress (1 only) explained that 2 of the 4 items on the slate had run out for the day (3:30 on a Saturday...?), the middle of lunch hour for Mexico.
My deduction was, if your main dish doesn't move, remove some of the other choices, the 2 less expensive ones perhaps, the sauteed mushrooms on baguette and the hot garlic shrimp on a roll, leaving lasagna (or the like) and the featured pork belly...so...4 pork bellies it was, with home fries..
Unfortunately, they were not true to the image on their web site for one, secondly, the dish is a clever construction, lasagna lookalike, of alternating slices of pork meat and fat, oven baked in a pyrex bowl and cut into squares (5cms X 5cms), 2 to be precise, top layer very dry (waiting for a customer, perhaps?).
Good value and quality? Not in my book.!
If the owner wants to open 5 more restaurants, I have all the used wooden pallets he needs in my warehouse. ;-)
Sorry, fellow reviewers, this one doesn't get my coroborating vote,
Happy trails to you.

Thank you for your comment.
We are in fact a small operated restaurant, with 3 people only as staff. Chef and waitress owners and a person that helps us with everything else.
Sorry to read that the porkbelly was not as you expected, and that many dishes we did not have. Saturday afternoon just before closing(45min) and end of our week, we want to keep our products fresh and freezer empty, therefore we will run out of food on Saturday, this is our policy.
Thank you for the offer, we will take all the pallets you have.
Iliana and James
