“Great new place to eat!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We frequently ate at their original restaruant and loved it. Their new bistro is just as good. The prices are slightly higher due to the location probably but well worth it. Would definitely come back for the future brunch menu!

“Every bit as great as the Kitchen, but a totally different City Vibe!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We were pleasantly surprised that they were open by New Year's Eve. Since we were regular customers of their original restaurant, we were welcomed with open arms; we felt like members of the family. The veal dishes were awesome, as was dessert. The wines were great, and we will definitely be back for more. Huge variety of selections --Italian, Seafood, Pastas. And of course, their Greek platter is one of the best. Don't miss this place if you're visiting. It's like coming home! To your trendy New York cousin's!

“Nice place just like the original”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

***** Disclaimer - this review is for the downstairs portion only. The upstairs was not yet open though they did let us tour it and it looks promising. *****

The Vaso family seems to be expanding their presence in the Alexandria Greek food market. The food quality is consistent with their other restaurant. There's a nice bar downstairs and there will also be one upstairs.

There were seven of us that enjoyed different selections. The Oysters Rockefeller was very good and their Greek pizza was excellent with a lot of different flavors. They made good lamb chops, and I could still be eating the veal chop that was stuffed with veal which was thinking about another veal. I'm not a tiramisu expert, but I thought theirs was tasty as well. There was also a cannoli that I thought was ok but other seemed to enjoy.

There is a growing but solid selection of wine, which in my opinion was a little pricy by the glass but appropriately priced by the bottle.
