    They were really accommodating to all the allergies at the table. The angel hair pasta was incredible. BUT it feels a bit past its prime

    Интересная кухня, стоит хоть раз сходить. Место хоть и крутое, но пускают в джинсах-кедах. Столик лучше бронировать заранее, а то прийдется ждать пару часов в ближайшем баре :)

    The duck with hummus was the best thing we had here, and the hazelnut cake with rhubarb was the best dessert. The foie gras profiterole was only okay.

    Great burger...pickled onions are perfect on it. Mashed potatoes with the beef is a new addition and a great one. Summer of Riesling is a good deal. All three are tasty.
