So, this restaurant offers a hipster experience from beginning to end.
The decor is carefully post-industrial: bare walls, bare retro cage bulbs, but fortunately comfortable seats. The waiters are welcoming and averagely attentive.
Service was very slow, over an hour passed between placing orders for 6 people and anything arriving at all. When asked whether we wanted anything else, we were reluctant to place any more strain on the kitchen lest it stop providing any food at all. We later declined dessert also, having no desire to wait another hour.
Portions are small; the menu and staff explain you should order 2-3 dishes, while 3 would be the actual minimum for anything approaching a full meal. So prices are higher than TripAdvisor would indicate, $40 or up.
The special cocktail, 'R U chicken', provide to be a watery combination of spirits and caramel flavour, being of no overall merit. A dish claiming to be a mushroom sformata was an almost tasteless mushroom-related foam. Other items were poorly described in the menu, leading to some diners surprised by items with major ingredients they did not wish to eat. The only item of merit was a very good braised pork on the bone.
Ultimately odd and largely unsatisfying food, further let down by extremely slow service.
I retired to my hotel and had a burger in the hotel bar to give me an actual dinner.
