    How do I know you’re passing off that H&M dress as couture? Because I was sipping an iced tea at this across-the-street café, watching you sneak out of the store.

    The dishes here are truly unique and provide a very memorable experience. We recommend the pretzel crusted crab cake and the cheesecake lollipop tree. Yes, this is heaven.

    This is experimental cuisine at its finest. Try the sea scallops “benedict” and the sumptuous lobster “steak”—and delight in food that’s pushing all kinds of limits

    Really great tasting food, really horrible service. Staff took forever to initially come over and we waited forever in between courses. Staff completely avoids eye contact.

    The prix fixe brunch is a really good deal but it's a lot of food. Go HUNGRY. The pretzel crusted crab cake and steak and eggs are two of the best items on the menu.

    Their wait staff is pretty aggressive. Not even 5 minutes after we sat down 3 different people had come over and asked to take our drink order. Prix fixe brunch is pretty good though.

    This place has its herbal menu items covered; Rosemary bread is a must try, and the Sage ice cream is more than surprisingly delicious (even if you typically arent a fan of these types of ingredients)

    The cheesecake lollipop tree looks good in theory, but I have yet to see anyone finish more than one pop. Don't order this unless you have a group of 6 to split it.

    Start with the pastrami salmon appetizer, and order the Prime Dry Aged Ribeye for your entree. This steak is no joke, get it medium rare - it's fatty and juicy! Best meal ever!
