The joint was jumping as they say. It was St. Patrick's Day and totally packed with a young hip crowd. But it was so loud you had to scream every word. And I have really good hearing. Nonetheless, the food was exceptional. Jasper's food rating in Zagat's was high and they delivered. Definitely would go again for the food and to see if we can have a conversation next time. Note to owners: try sound-dampening fabrics.
