    Best duck breast I've ever had. Calamari, ceviche, and chocolat pot de crème also to die for.

    It's all about the sea bass ceviche.

  • Pueblo Viejo Tequila

    If you are in Foreign Cinema, try a real Mexican taste, order a Paloma mixed with Pueblo Viejo Blanco

    I went here solo and sat in the back bar area. Honestly this is a great date spot. The food is semi-pricey but well worth it. Had the 'Champagne-Truffle Omelet', a bloody mary, and some oysters.

    A wonderful brunch spot in a lovely, open, airy setting. The poached eggs with tender pork, chickpeas, mole verde, and crispy plantains are spicy and delicious.

    Make reservations or expect a wait. Cocktails, duck, and the pork chops are always good bets.

    There wasn't a single item I ate that I didn't like. The sticky bun is insane. 🙌🏼for the champagne omelette

    Such a cool spot. Had an amazing dinner here. All the food was fantastic and the ambiance unique. Service wasn't the best but I think that was just our server; not the entire staff

    Beautiful ambiance but way overpriced for brunch. Rhubarb poptarts are bomb but left still hungry.

    Good food, a bit pricey. Id recommend brunch over dinner. Not the best for gluten free but the kitchen is flexible to make changes in the menu

    The venue is great, the service was fantastic and the Bloody Marys were amazing (both the regular and the Persian). They are even super friendly to kids but the food was just ok.
