Finally went to Medium Rare for brunch, as steak is the specialty of this place and I am not a big meat eater. At least for brunch there are offerings of non-steak items in the limited menu. $23 per person with bottomless drinks, a starter and main is a pretty good deal. If you'd rather have tea and not coffee you are out of luck as that will be extra, no substitutions, which is something I could never understand: how much more complicated is a cup of hot water and a tea bag? It doesn't even cost as much as a cup of coffee. But as usual, tea drinkers are always discriminated against, especially in a meat heavy restaurant, guess meat and tea just don't go together. Anyway, for starters, we had the yogurt parfait and salad, for mains steak frites, and poached eggs with sausage. Everything was Ok, starting from the bread, except for the poached eggs, they are the most undercooked I'd ever seen. If you are not big on eating almost raw eggs better state that beforehand and maybe they can remedy before it's too late (or get the only other option - scrambled). I believe perfectly poached eggs should have a runny center with relatively firm white, but these were equally runny making it impossible to eat with a fork. They might as well served the eggs in a cup so that I could drink it all and not leave the whole mess on the plate. The poached egg fiasco aside, the restaurant has a good vibe - the dining room has a low ceiling, giving it a kind of casual basement feel, although there's lots of natural light with the full plate glass front. Window seats are nice for people and traffic watch. Table spacing is fair, especially when they are set up with a mix of 2 and 4 and not a whole row of 2's. Nice ambience, not overly noisy even with a packed house. Good neighborhood restaurant as long as you are fine with the limited menu.
