    Food perfectly executed. Likely the smartest wine list in the state.

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

    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.
