Excellent view of Times Square The food was wonderful and the wine/beer selection was also. The service was on point. We need to be timely to make it to our shows and they were very accommodating with no attitude!

Newly renovated and framed by chic, whitewashed décor, our portal to Times Square is bursting with theatric energy and color. Gather at our communal tables and peer out at the bustling world outside our walls. At night, the space transforms with a DJ booth and beats that echo through the night. Let the neon glow light your way to a new sensory experience.
