    Edamame is a great app. Ask if they are serving morel mushroom fries!

    The steak sandwich is pretty good, but the service at night is horrendous.

    Should stick w/ the dirty martini - Cosmo wasn't a Cosmo even though the bartender swore it was. Orange slice instead of lime & a bit cloudy from pineapple juice...which doesn't belong in a Cosmo!

    Prepare to sit for at least 10 minutes before the wait staff acknowledges your existence. They might bring you water. If you're worthy.
