Bustling collegiate atmosphere on the New Haven Green. Variety of interesting dishes with a sophisticated slant. Excellet service and good drinks. You feel like you are in the swim.

New to town and came here for dinner with a friend. I don’t eat meat or dairy and the kale/spinach paneer dish (minus the paneer) was recommended to me. The dish was bland and lacked texture...on a more positive note the wine was good. If...More
