    This is maybe the best restaurant in the whole state of Iowa. We had an amazing dinner. Great food quality. The staff is gorgeous. What a wonderful evening.

    Get the bone marrow at some point in the night, and finish off your meal with a Kentucky thoroughbred cocktail.

    Their cocktails are superbly crafted. Indecisive? Let Josh make a recommendation. He knows his mixology shit.

    Best falafel I've ever had (and I've had a lot if falafels). Also loved the beet salad & the homemade sorbet. Delicious & beautifully presented. The server was super friendly & the prices reasonable!

    Substantial spinach salad with crispy fruit, curried slivered almonds and crumbled cheese. Also: the falafel flatbread is delicious and filling if you're super hungry!

    I'd raved about this as a lunch spot. At dinner, our waitress was super rude for no reason. None of us will go there for dinner again.
