Great place for dinner or drinks and appetizers/sushi. We love the Red Dragon cocktail and the chicken lettuce wraps. Always busy and a little loud but it has a great vibe. Happy hour is a great way to enjoy their offerings without breaking the bank.

This is a lovely restaurant in the heart of downtown traverse city. It seems to be "the" place to be based upon the crowd in the bar and the filled tables. The food is fresh and expertly prepared. The service is exceptional. Beware the grapefruit martini thingy! Only allow yourself the luxury of having quantity one. After one, you will... More
