Good food in a very well location in Brooklyn. We had a good glass of wine and two very delicious pastas. The appetizer with charcuterie was also great. I will come back, sure!

Reasonably priced food on offer in an unobtrusive ambient atmosphere. I had excellent Strip steak with frites and a ceasar salad with a glass of house red for a shade over twenty dollars, at lunch.

We went for breakfast, service was fast but food (burnt french toast...) was barely competent. Orange juice is not natural, coffee takes rancid. Best point: their vegetarian cassolette, that would be worth coming back again.
