    Upscale and fancy toppings abound, but, done with a light touch, they serve to highlight the natural flavor of the proteins. Be on the look out for the goat half-smoke sandwich, an off-menu special.

    Hip sort of vibe here, friendly, great staff. Their food is small portions with interesting, different, delicious flavors. Good place for a quiet date or drinks with a friend or two, not a big group.

    This place has a late night happy hour as well. 10PM-12AM; $5 Titos and select beers. An added plus.. electric plugs next to every bar stool so you can recharge your phone AND your body.

    Great pub! Fast cooking, big portions, 13 variations of draught beer and a lot of cocktails. Overcrouded, reservation needed . Strongly recommend fish for two. Menu is overpriced - fish 34$, beer 7$,

    Get the flatbread arranged with poached clams, peppery arugula, coins of fingerling potato and piquillo peppers, a riff on New Haven-style clam pizza. Read more

    French toast was particular good. Moist and well glazed with maple syrup. The raspberry addition was nice and tart to break down the sweetness.

    If you're here for brunch, you must get the fantastic Breakfast Sammy with house made sausage, fried egg, and harissa.

    The charcuterie board, lots of unique martinis, great waitstaff, good social spot. The apps and entrees are also highly crafted and almost all delightfully tasty.

    The short rib pot pie was rich and satisfying, while the branzino was light, flaky and delicious!

    Can get pretty pricey. You'll find something for $3 sitting right next to something for $20 on the menu which was a bit confusing, but I guess allows for people with different budgets.

    Mix and match the flatbread and goat cheese fondue. And just splurge and get a cocktail.

    Huge place. Lacks the cocktail lounge feel, but turns out good cocktails nonetheless. Get the dirty gin martini.
