Brunch at Sylvia's was fantastic! I highly recommend the crispy pork shoulder with grits. It is worth the wait if you forget to make reservations.

Great little bar. Excellent food. Had the Negroni Bianco for a cocktail that was so good. Salads were well dressed (meaning coated greens but not too much dressing) My wife had the Pappardelle Bolognese, which was delicious. It was our fourth night of dinners out...More
