    Here, every bite warrants a pause. Pairing your meal with one of the house cocktails won't jeopardize your ability to notice the nuances in flavor, especially if you settle on the cucumber sakerita. Read more

    The burrito was bland and the cocktail tasted like something you'd make at home if you were out of mixers.

    The light, crisp, good-for-you eating continues with the riceless maki, which subs a forest-hued collard green for nori as a wrapper for enoki mushrooms, carrots, cucumber and avocado. Read more

    I am by no means a vegetarian, but I love this place. The food is amazing. especially the Slider Special. 4pm-6pm daily. Two mushroom sliders and a beer = $7.50.

    So I'm gonna be all "the Baked Goat Cheese is amazing," but realistically how could it not be? It's the cheese created from the milk of a goat, which has been perfectly prepared in an oven. Come on.

    Cute decor. Service was good but I found this place to be extremely overpriced. Spent $50 on dinner for two and felt as if I'd barely ate. Portions are very small and not filling. Try the Brussels!

    The slider is delicious and filling even for me and I'm a meat eater. The creamy polenta is perfectly done and worth it. Seared collared greens are the perfect side. Also: all of the wine.

    The baked goat cheese was amazing, but then again it was all really great. The dishes were brought out one or two at a time so you're not overwhelmed. Outdoor seating in the summer is the best.
