    The fried chicken sandwich is by far the best chicken sandwich I've had in Brooklyn. Everything there is always fantastic.

    Savory French toast is amazing for brunch. Can't go wrong at dinner- everything is great. Menu has improved a lot since first few months they were open.

    Really gorgeous space. Simple breakfast menu featuring some sweets. I’d like to come back once the weather’s warm to enjoy their patio.

    Can't beet the surprisingly delicious borscht salad. Deconstructed like the Soviet Union and almost as large.

    Try one of their cocktails! The Los Suicidas Mezcal cocktail is great - also the Zelda Fitzgerald & Autumn Garage #2!

    Get pretty much any course and try the cocktails. You can skip the dessert. The outdoor area is awesome and the service is great.

    Nice ambiance, decent music. Pot pie was a good vegetarian option, but Veggie burger was a bit dry. Definitely try the corn spoonbread. Borscht salad was great too. Cocktails were well executed.

    It's one more of those reclaimed wood, subway tiles and old-fashioned light bulbs kind of places. Food is good tho. Had Cubana sandwich and short rib entrée, which side could have been bigger.

    Burrata is such a good combo of ingredients. Sweet, savory, salty. Very balanced. The war and peas is so light and refreshing

    As promised, I came back for the patio and it didn’t disappoint. Ordered the charred romanesco, risotto, and burrata and left each plate clean.

    Don't know why I keep going here. I think I just really want it to be good? But it's just not. Slow service, food is inconsistent at best, and the menu is kinda boring. Really nice space, though.
