“Fine dining at great new venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

We had a lovely meal at this new small place in Montefiore St. Charming atmosphere and enthusiastic young staff. Their goose (duck?) à l'orange was very good and well-presented, as was the apple crumble ( served in a pan with a beautiful sorbet and a flaming glass of arak).
