    They've changed the chef: no more mussels in the menu, nor mergez or couscous. Service was even worse. We lost a spot in the hood.

    Avoid. Not told credit card machine wasn't working until attempting to pay check. Management response: horrendous. Service was good up to that point. It just takes one person to spoil a meal/evening.

    This feels like a neighborhood spot, but it draws hip people from around town. The food, especially the Brazilian moqueca, is flavorful and hearty. And the creative cocktails alone are worth the trek. Read more

    A safe choice in LES. Staff is very nice. The Cahors red wine is very good, it's also the favorite of the very nice waitress. Happy to have told her where Cahors is located :)

    The food was amazing (Mushroom soup, muscles, and steak)... even the bread was delicious. Also our waitress, Anna, was the most friendly and accommodating waitress I have ever had, hands down.
