    This yuppie heaven has friendly wait staff but the real treat is the full bar. Food isn't great but the drinks are top notch. Be sure to try their Bloody Mary (it's GREAT), and also the Shakin' Jesse.

    This place is great for a sit down spot late night, especially after a show at the fox. Brunch is nothing special but definitely try the shakin jesse any time of day.

    Foods pretty bad. Cold, bland, and service is poor. Only thing going for it is that it's next to the Fox Theater and open late.

    Avocados on my Benedict were ROTTEN! The waitress was really nice about it, got my meal comped. But being served rotten food at a restaurant was pretty bad. My milk shake was awesome though.
