    Lovely, busy vibe.Ricotta fritters are delicious and the burger too. They don't do fries though, burger comes with chips... ???

    Came in for something quick, grabbed a turkey avocado sandwich with the alpine herbal ice tea. Clean, simple but tasty - a job well done.

    The food, service, and ambiance are on point. Lights on the ceilings are adorable, the avocado toast was divine (bread 👌🏼) and our waiter was really fun. Will definitely be back ASAP!

    Sit facing into the restaurant, not looking at the wall. Who wants to miss the excellent people watching?

    I normally come here brunch and get the lemon French toast but recently discovered the much chiller, cash-only speakeasy area in the back of the kitchen!

    Salads are great. It's one of those places where it's pretty good food but you go mainly for the atmosphere.

    Vongole is tasty. But the atmosphere is tasty. It does get loud at night though.

    For breakfast, go for the Rösti Norwegian. It's lox on top of a latke. It's like having Hanukkah all year round!

    Awesome fondue bar in back, but great place to grab a bite and (if it's World Cup season) catch a game.

    Through the kitchen of this stylish Austrian eatery in Soho is a hidden room. Mimicking an Apres bar in the alps, fondue and raclette are served during the colder months. Read more

    Today at Café Select when Gossip Girl guy Penn Badgley walked in and sat next to our table I was eating this amazing Hanger Steak and didn't bother to look up his face. Was amazing. I mean the steak.
