This restaurant is a 2 block walk from the Flagship. Always crowed because the food is great and they serve nice portions. I wish they had a place in the Flagship.

The problem there is the portion size or they always dont have certain food in stock. They will cut down your meal or you cant get it, i've been there a couple times. The food is good IF it is available 😡

They have the best food EVER!!!! The vibe, the people, the atmosphere is wonderful. Make sure you go to the one with the bar and make reservations. When you do ask for your server to be Ferris. He is the best.
