Happy hour password (as of April 2015) is margarita.
Fun little speakeasy vibe. Friendly bartenders. Loved the Runway, and they'll also make you a killer Pisco Sour.
Holy buttery salmon nigiri. Get your ramen with a miso base, rich, and medium spicy (unless you want to blow your nose every five minutes). Sapporo on tap was the perfect cleanser/finish.
Shrimp salad with pineapple for a light lunch. Great house margs. Also: WiFi pass (as of today) is BestBurritos.
Check out the All-Stars. Reserve tix in advance or get in line 45 minutes early for standing room. No drinks or food or photo-taking—so take advantage of the hour and just listen and enjoy.
Feeling like you need a break from all the dranks and strolling? Park under a tree here and listen to the music coming from all directions.
Soft egg and lobster (also referred to as lobster egg bruschetta). You don't need to know anything else. Go forth and enjoy.
One of the best Manhattans I've ever had. Food-wise: If they have them, try the fried cauliflower and steak tartare. Perfectly constructed (or deconstructed, in the case of the tartare).
I can't say enough positive things about this place. Try the tasting menu: Only $35 for a small(ish) version of a salad, a pasta, and a protein. The bibb lettuce + lobster pasta + NY Strip = amazing.
Bill, Ralph's grandson, is keeping this shop running per his grandpa's dream. He's very thorough. Give him some business if you've got kicks to fix.
