    The window into the kitchen provides a unique dining experience. The food is good, but the signature cocktails are worth the visit alone.

    The Kung Paolo Calamari is a must. Never had a steak cut of calamari like this before.

    The BLT is amazing! Wonderful combination of bacon, lobster and tomato with ravioli. Sounds strange but really delicious.

    Martinis $5 on Wednesday was a great deal. The steak was perfect and the guacamole delicious. Atmosphere upstairs was busy but quiet enough to have a conversation.

    The BLT is delicious. The shrimp & grits have extremely strong/bold flavors. Glad I had the BLT instead. Get the bananas foster bread pudding too.
