    Great “locavore” hot spot! Chef Bryce Gilmore creates memorable small tapas-style plates made for sharing and enjoying. A foodie gathering spot. The space is small so arrive early or be ready to wait.

    Absolutely amazing small plates. Typically a bit of a wait, but come, put your name in, then go next door to Henri's or Horseshoe Lounge for a drink to pass the time.

    Let the waitress recommend plates – WD40 would approve. And nab the best spots in the place: at the bar with full view of the kitchen.

    Small plates, small space: Only 34 seats, so expect a wait. It’s worth it. A farm-to-table ethos and thoughtful flavor combinations distinguish this first brick & mortar from Bryce Gilmore. Read more
