Stopped in here one night with a group of friends for drinks. We stayed for dinner and it was great. Everything we had was full of flavor and delicious. Will go back.

The food was good with a variety of breakfast and lunch items. The truffle sides are a must. The DJ played great music and made it almost into a dance party. The service was a little slow. I'm not sure it my party of 8 impacted the service.

Funky place with a really good atmosphere.

My husband & I had a thanksgiving meal here. We had plenty of food & good wine. We were looked after very well by the staff. We both had a traditional turkey dinner which we enjoyed very much.

Our experience was very much enhanced by the attentive and friendly service we received. If you are looking for something that is a little different give this a try.

I don't make it to the lower east side too often being that I'm from Phoenix, but I've made 3 trips here for the mac n cheese! The first time was still my favorite when they were serving the onion soup mac-n-cheese! Holy smokes, it's amazing. Sweet, salty and cheesy,... all my favorite flavors on top of pasta, how can you go wrong? I've been craving it since. My dining partner was a virgin to fried pickles, so we had to start with an order. Some of the best I've had, batter was more of a beer-batter tempura style... if that makes sense. On my next couple visits I learned that they change their menu frequently so my dish was not being served, but I have since enjoyed the Mac N Cheese sandwich with tomato soup and the BBQ mac-n-cheese minus the pork (substituted mushrooms). All very good.
