    Oysters were super fresh and their burrata with pumpkin was delicious. Also, service was friendly and while slow at times, was actually perfect for a nice, intimate Friday night dinner.

    Brunch? Get an order of the pancakes. I don't really like pancakes but these slices of heaven are not your average pancakes. I got the banana & choc. So good. You can thank me later. You're welcome!

    the avocado soup is pretty tangy, but my wife enjoyed it. if you're looking for something smooth and creamy though it probably has too much acid for you.
