    The space upstairs is perfect for events, private or public AND their event planning is a joy 2 work with! Expect great atmosphere, food & cocktails! This place is a sure bet to Make Someones Monday!

    Meatpacking carts serve as tables & are sturdy enough to handle one of the beers on tap. However, the real draw here is the menus, inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s favorite cocktails & dishes. Read more

    Look, I'm no "turkey burger" expert. I am an intermittent turkey burger eater at best. But I can say this with confidence: this was the best turkey burger I've ever had.

    Vegetarian friendly. Chickpea crepe is delicious. Nice variety of burgers. Service is mediocre but believe I just got a bad server. Would definitely come back and give the service another shot.

    A place to mingle, schmooze and booze. A knockout of a bar for meeting up with clients, friends or dates. Order a martini or sparkling wine and you can't go wrong.

    You MUST get the Hepburn. And outdoor seating is first come first serve, so you can sit there even if you're only getting drinks!

    The salmon fillet melds rustic and refined elements with a hearty rye-crumb-and-Dijon-mustard crust and beurre blanc sauce, softened by a bit of sweetness from allspice. It's unexpectedly delicious. Read more

    Really good. Salmon steak over the truffle risotto was ridiculously flavorful. Loud environment so don't expect a quiet night.

    Not a good idea to go if you're looking for a quick lunch. They apparently can't handle a crowd during the lunch rush. Took over an hour for our food to come out and it was cold when they brought it.
