    Blue cheese and jamón Serrano croquetas might be followed by a mound of short ribs falling off the bone. It’s totally out of the way, in an area that’s been up-and-coming for a decade Read more

    Fabulous food and service! Go for the tasting menu. We had five in our party and that meant we were served 26 different dishes from appetizers to dessert and plenty for all to try everything!

    Like the chef, the style of the place is whimsical and feminine, with the most intense rigor just below the surface. The menu pulls from classical French training and half-Argentine heritage. Read more

    Everything is amazing! Been coming for years. The croquettes, tuna tartare, fried chicken, short rib are all amazing. Make sure to finish with the bread pudding. And go for the house mojitos!

    Michelle Bernstein serves up comfort food with a twist here. The short ribs, creamy polenta and bread pudding are standouts. Every Wednesday, take part in an all-you-care-to-eat fried chicken meal.

    Chef Michelle Bernstein serves quirky small plates at her popular neighborhood bistro. that utilize the efforts of local farmers and fishermen. The Squid Ink Pasta with Prawns is simply delicious.

    squash risotto was very disappointing. It should be offered as only a side dish. My husband ordered the short ribs and those were very good. Service was okay. Skip the Mojito's

    You gotta try the Peruvian Style Ceviche, Watercress Salad, Short Ribs Falling off the Bone, Creamy Polenta, Crunchy Pork Belly, and their daily dessert selection! This place is to die for. :)

    Great service in a cozy environment. The food is very well prepared with fresh ingredients and attention to details. Try the short ribs with a glass of red wine. You will not regret it.

    The portions may be small but the food is delicious at Chef Michelle Bernstein's first restaurant on her own. Flavors are powerful and decor is whimsical at this locally-adored spot.

    We did the chef's tasting - out of this world delicious - ALL of it. Chris was a fantastic server. This is a phenomenal restaurant. Valet is silly though- at least on weekdays.

    Chef Bernstein’s delicious fare nods to Cuba, the Caribbean and South America with dishes like blue-cheese-and-jamon croquetas. It’s the elevated versions of the hearty classics you came for.
