    The décor is absolutely stunning, and it doesn’t outshine the excellent food. Try Fluke Sashimi, Kasha and Bowtie Pasta with Veal Meatballs and the Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sundae.

    Mushroom pizza goes down in history and I don't even need to mention the level the salted caramel sundae reached. Sashimi caught me off guard - spot on.

    Mushroom pizza with egg is top notch, as is the burger. To start, def get the toast with ricotta and strawberry spread! Close it out with the sundae - off the charts!

    If you don't have a reservation, try showing up when they open at 5:30 and vie for a spot at the bar. Drink until you're hungry.

    Can we talk about the salted caramel sundae? Yes, there’s caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts on it. Yes, it’s sitting in a pool of hot fudge sauce. Yes, it’s famous for a reason.
