“Bacon wrapped dates to die for”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

I love their menu. The bacon wrapped dates are only available at dinner but they are fantastic. I would also recommend their Mac n cheese with pancetta. I usually get the kale salad. They stamp their menu every week but it doesn't appear to change week to week. At least not with these core items. The cocktails are delicious too and the chocolate chip cookie at the end is a great finishing touch

“Cocktails!!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

All I have tried here are the cocktails but they are excellent!! Some unique flavors and blends. Step outside of your normal drinks and just go in and pick a drink that has your usual alcohol as a base and go crazy. Didn't eat here but spoke to a few people and the macaroni and cheese was highly recommended.

“Outstanding cocktails, tasty small plates in hip, Belle Epoque decor”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Perfect place for an after work cocktail (the cocktail list is creative and superb, try the "clocktower manhattan" and the bar is well stocked with everything, so they will custom mix for you. Staff is eager to please and get your drink "just right" They serve small plates which you mix, match and share. Not to be missed are the dates stuffed with a combination of cream and goat cheese, wrapped in bacon,with a reduced balsamic dressing sprinkled over...made me want to return the next night to repeat. Also fabulous are the crispy lobster sliders and the perfect shoestring fries with crumbles of blue cheese. Some (but not all) of the small plates are quite spicy, ask ahead if this is not to your liking.

They come around with a basket of free fresh baked cookies at the end! This is a destination for young business types, and gets crowded at peak hours. I loved it, and the fact that they kept the beautiful Belle Epoque wood paneling and fixtures from the previous place, adding their own touches in the bar area for a highly creative ambience. Gets noisy at peak hours, but that's because it's very, very popular, and for good reason.
