After reading these glowing reviews, I had to try and see this for myself. It's in a quiet neighborhood away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
Made an online reservation, and arrived on time. I was sat at the very small restaurant (10 tables +/-). Shortly greeted by the owner chef, where he explained the brief menu in detail.
Honestly, i assume any restaurant in any great city that makes top 5 must be exquisite. While this intimate restaurant exceeded all my desires, I'm quizzical as to why it's #2. I can't find fault with anything, don't get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the personal attention. Somehow it did not wow me to have rated it as #2 in a world class city, that's all.
I do encourage a visit, and you will not be disappointed. The portions are generous, the quality is great,and the service from the owner/chef is very very good. It's intimate and cute.
A great find TA readers!
