    Still disappointed. High prices, small portions, although decent food.

    Their Saturday bake sale was featured on Unique Sweets and has a waiting queue of 1 hour and the baked goods are sold out in 1 hour or so. It's how highly popular their bake sale is.

    Can't get a reservation? Just show up 5:30pm when they first open.

    Cute upscale American spot. Get your hands on the chicken biscuit if possible! Found this place on my new Supper app:

    Totally mediocre. Small menu, small drink options, and small space combine for a thoroughly forgettable experience. Nothing is great, nothing is terrible. The popovers are massively overhyped. Skip it

    Sitting at the bar by the kitchen offers some fantastic views of the food preparation.

    Everything. And they have Session. Rotating menu keeps your on your toes in a delicious way.

    The entire menu changes pretty often (usually seasonally) but everything on it is always amazing. A few vegetarian options and a choice of proteins, plus a lot of gluten-free choices make this great

    Great Food. Great wait-staff. However, cold, unwelcoming reception.

    Overhyped. Overpriced. It's not bad, but I really really wanted to love it. I think I'm more upset that I didn't like it than with the food. I think they got full of themselves. Or an off night.

    I loved the Country Ham w/ goat cheese app & the braised goat was awesome!!!!! The service was awesome and the patio outside was nice, but inside was TOO LOUD!! They seriously need soundproofing!

    Reasonably priced and informal but still very fine dining, indeed. Rising star Ned Elliott’s seasonal menu is spare but stunning, with each well-conceived plate coming together in delicious harmony. Read more

    Should have been a much better experience. All of our dishes came at once and gave our meal such a rushed feeling, like the staff wanted to turn the table. We were there 45 minutes, tops. Food so-so.
    Katie Behr · May 6, 2013
  • Joshua E.
    Go for the Whole Shebang.
    Joshua Ehart · April 4, 2013

    Everything on he menu looks enticing but don't feel low brow for ordering the hamburger. You won't be sorry.

    Show up at 6, after the first wave has settled. You'll get a spot without standing in line.

    Make sure to try as many of the dishes as possible. But the popovers were awesome
    Mike Totah · February 27, 2013
  • Lety L.
    Food is great but be prepared to shout at your date...too loud & you cannot hear yourself over everyone talking. And the dishes need to be changed, all your cutlery goes crashing to center

    The glazed short rib was amazing! And you must finish with the lemon parfait- such a great experience:)

    The food is definitely rich and different - something for the brave and eclectic. We had the pop overs, jowl, beef tongue, chicken skin salas, squid ink pasta and fried chicken biscuit :)

    Saturday bake is a great way to enjoy the beginning of a weekend. Everything is good but my favorite is the breakfast bread pudding.

    This place was awesome. The burger is a wondrous experience.

    Great Brooklyn vibe. Stick to the staples as pasta and funkier stuff ain't go. Ain't good at all. Cyclist Cocktail is awesome.
    Paulie Dery · July 20, 2012
  • Danielle R.
    Always ask for a recommendation from the staff before you order and go with it. You'll get something you wouldn't have and it'll be awesome.

    This restaurant seats only 42 people, but has become a hot spot thanks to the innovative dishes made by Chef Ned Elliot. You'll find dishes such as scrambled pigs brains and venison heart tartare.

    For brunch, went with the server's suggestion: fried chicken, biscuit and gravy, topped with a fried egg. Excellent!

    Chef Ned Elliott's inventive seasonal cuisine and wife Jodi's stellar desserts make this neighborhood spot a winner. Also a great for brunch. [Eater 38 Member]

    Gotta say, the beef tongue was "meh." But then again, when else are you going to have beef tongue?

    Get the brownie with shoestring fries. If you don't get an oral orgasm you are surely not human.

    I really enjoyed the root beer bacon ice cream float. The chocolate-covered bacon strip was a little odd, but the float itself was delicious.
