The menu is imaginative and unique. There are a lot of cool options and the mood is casual as you place your order when you first enter and then the dishes are delivered to your table when they are ready. I would highly recommend checking...More

While traveling and searching for somewhere we could eat, I found that this place sounded really interesting. I loved the polish food that a family friend cooked for me growing up. My partner is a picky eater so I wasn't sure how he'd feel. I'm...More
