    Husband and wife team are warm and welcoming, and each and every course is a delight. BYOB - recommend starting with bubbles and transitioning to red halfway through. It's worth the wait!

    This place is amazing! I'm a picky eater, but was nearly licking my plate with each course. Well worth the wait! Also, the service was fantastic. Well-timed courses and very friendly wait staff.

    BYOB but there's a liquor store 3 blocks away. This is a true dining "experience," not just a meal, come prepared to spend a few amazing hours with your dining companions over amazing dishes.

    Try the miraculous chestnut soup with white Alba mushrooms and truffle essence and the impeccable Angus beef with goosefoot greens, cumin, shallot jus, and ingenious variations on heirloom carrots.

    BYOB. A prix-fixe may include slow-poached beef, seared branzino. Plant the biodegradable menu: it’s got flower seeds. – Green Guide Editor

    The prix fixe menu includes roasted quail with spiced beluga lentils/compressed apple/ginger. What it lacks is, thankfully, an actual goose's foot. Read more

    If you’re going to open this far from the action with a $90 prix fixe menu and a goofy name, it helps to be as talented as Chris Nugent. And BYO.
