    The coconutini is ah-mazing. If you really feel like have a good time- 2 champagne celebrations and you will be good to go! Also, the BBQ Chicken salad is really fresh and has a nice spice to it .

    Very cool designed space, often showing some type of art on the walls. Great drinks. Good place to start the night off or hang in the afternoon.

    A bit pricey but well worth the trip once you see the bathrooms. Hint: they are unisex but don't worry, no one can see you do your business. :-)

    This space has been around for ages, and still has that modern appeal, especially the skylight, as it is sandwich'd between two buildings!

    Excellent value restaurant for SOHO! Good simple eats. Try the buffalo chicken salad and check out the restroom!

    See the coolest restaurant bathrooms in Soho. And make sure you don’t leave without trying the rum cake.

    Food is nice, but staff can be amazingly inattentive, even when the place is quiet. Waitstaff disappear in the back much too long.

    Food sucks, bar sucks, bartender is stingy. Only thing that stands out about the place is the bathroom has a cool door that fills with gas making it opaque when you lock it. (1 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    This place is whack, it's like a time warp back to an early 2000's episode of Sex and the City. Came for the well documented nachos but give them a B-. Overpriced, get out while you still can!
