    The mac and cheese is amazing. And I say this as someone who usually doesn't like mac and cheese.

    Burrata toast will change yr life! Can't go wrong with the charcuterie board either, if you're a little adventurous! 😍

    Hard to go wrong here: ask about the special Mac and cheese of the day. if that doesn't appeal, the meat I and cheese boards, toasties, or recluse Mac and cheese are delicious.

    Make sure you try the Spanish Toasty and the Fois Gras Mousse. They are literally to die for.

    The pecorino reserva IL Florino was great with 2000 vintage champagne on new year day. Recommended by staff! Salty and a hint of blue cheese on the aftertaste

    1) go over to the wine bar, 2) Sit and have a glass of wine & a snack, 3) when cheese counter line dies down, go get some cheese to take home!
