Great for brunch. Lots of interesting choices. The brussell sprouts are amazing. Also some simple things are done perfectly like the yogurt parfait. Reservations are a good idea as the place can get packed.

All of the tables were understandably full...despite being the weekend following New Year's. Be sure to reserve on OpenTable. Excellent fish, beef, duck salads and vegetables. Very flexible with substitutions to accommodate a gluten free diet.

It ain't cheap, but it's really good. The menu has a great balance between creativity comfort food. If you're a whisky aficionado, you're in luck! They have a great selection.

Yes. Shouldn't be a problem. In cases like that I usually mention to the server that we have tickets to a show and they will ensure you make it on time.
