Stop reading this review. Just go to this awesome hip place and eat. If you want to feel like you're with the "in crowd" and be cool that's fine. It doesn't matter. What matters is that the food is original fresh and completely awesome. I...More

Try everything and ask for the drink recommendation for each plate. These guys know their stuff and have a true love for food. Their blend of flavors and textures is pure genius.
