    Service is excellent, listen to their suggestions. We ordered the jars as an app (which come with delicious toast), however it was very filling for just two people. Amazing cocktails and wine list.

    Looking for some Breakfast in Midtown? Go to Empire State South! Probably one of the nicest place in the area for a quick, delish breakfast & some warm coffee. Don't forget to ask for the pie du jour

    Pimento cheese is delicious! Be aware it's pretty spicy. They have a parking validation at the parking next to Hyatt hotel.

    Grab a 'Georgia Coffee' if you need something refreshing. Not a hardcore coffee drink but still delicious.

    Fantastic bar scene with artisan cocktails. Highly recommend the snacks "In Jars" to start and the Nantucket Bay scallops. Hanger steak was cooked perfectly. Great craft beer selection , too.

    Walked in 1 min before closing and still experienced top notch service and flawless execution of food. This place is legit. The grilled octopus and white kimchi salad was fantastic.
