    Burgers were awesome, the crispy brussels sprouts were amazing, but the meat and cheese plate was truly epic!

    Great music and dance parties late night. Ask for a sazerac, they light up the essence of the lemon peel with a match. It's perfect. 😉

    Ask about the homemade cinnamon moonshine. On second thought, you're probably not cool enough to actually get to try it...

    Food and drinks here are both delicious. Good music and cool vibes, except the bouncers can surpass a daddy's-money-wealthy, Hamptons-going yuppie in their douchiness. So watch out for that I guess.

    Come here for lunch when you get a chance...less attractive people flaunting their rich looks. And the dishes are better, and actually affordable around the daytime

    The smoked blue fish dip is a must. Make sure to ask for extra bay crisps. They don't give you a ton... Ands it's fun to say bay crisps. Seriously, the dip is among the best apps in the city.
