Kinda tucked away which was nice. Open and inviting, friendly staff. Really good food choices, highlighting the variety of foods and combinations, very cool. Got noisy as it filled up which challenged the discussion. Staff was attentive but got slow as the meal went on....More

The hip, rustic decor is cool. The service is friendly. It is hard to find the restaurant since it is on the second floor. One has to go up stairs and down a hallway if you enter from Greenwich Avenue. My salad with salmon was...More

This organic farm-to-table restaurant doesn’t have a presence on the street so it was a good thing that we knew the address on Greenwich Avenue. The doorway at #107 leads to a stairway up to several businesses. Down the hallway and another set of stairs...More

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and be so disappointed? My friend had been wanting me to try out this restaurant for months since I am such a “foodie”. The ambiance was nice, staff are friendly. But food proportions were dismal. I ordered streak...More

We opted for the tasting menu and were impressed with the effort the chef made to accommodate a few of our tasting preferences. The meat course and one other were varied so that each partner had a different dish. Wine pairings were thoughtful. We were...More

Awesome farm to table restaurant in a rustic designed space. You have to look for it because it is on the second floor with no avenue frontage. Once you find it you won't be disappointed. Home made pasta with fresh morels, aged beef, all organic...More
