    I have never been a fan of salads. Because they are boring. Not here. I will wholeheartedly recommend you eat a salad here. Order two different ones, they're really good.

    Down-to-earth place with friendly staff and exceptional food. Everything we had was delicious. I recommend the pistachio semifreddo w hot fudge and flourless chocolate cake!

    The zuchini is so simple and fresh. A classic dish here. Fried green beans are also great.

    One of the best american cuisine restaurants ever. You can order anything, and will be perfection- pork chop, crispy skate... Make sure you start with an amazing cocktail!

    Baked fontina will completely fill you up (shared with someone at that). Sunday brunch seems to be enjoyed by mature audience which makes it real brunch, not drunch.

    More in the mood for the "unch" part of brunch? The Tasty Burger is delicious🍔👌

    Resy gave me the pro-tip that the tempura string beans are the jam... and they sure are. Get them for the table!

    Had a tough night here. Place is great, just ordered wrong. Chicken liver appetizer didnt sit well with us. Pass on it for something a bit less adventurous.

    The food is good and the portions are decent. Their restaurant menu is particularly a good deal compared to others.

    Amazing brunch menu - the huevos rancheros is tops and the oxtail fusilli and green bean tempura are a must have!

    Absolutely delicious pumpkin panzenella salad! Just a tad small portion. But that should not stop you from ordering it!

    Wow - the fact this place is on 175 lists says it all. Good food - nice relaxed ambiance.

    If you sit at the bar and order wisely, you can certainly eke out a meal for not much more than $15/head. It was a light meal, we were certainly full when we left, and more than satisfied.

    Great food, ambiance and a wonderful waitress who heard my mom mention wanting just a small bite of dessert and brought us chocolate truffles on the house.

    The Red Cat's over-the-top deep-fried bacon dish has been on and off the menu sporadically since its inception. And though it's currently off, the restaurant assures us it's always available.

    Admire funky décor like barn siding and rotating artwork while enjoying perfectly-cooked zucchini, fresh burrata, and grilled beer brats with mac and cheese.

    Donuts great...didn't need as much sugar...but good. Be careful to not drop the chocolate on your silk blouse. (oops)

    Use the bathroom furthest from the entrance - the photo opposite the toilet will make you giggle.

    Get the bacon tempura - not on the menu or for the faint of heart (seriously it might give you a heart attack) but oh so delicious

    Annie Lu · September 29, 2012
  • Risa

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Tempura Bacon. "The over-the-top deep-fried bacon dish has been on and off the menu sporadically, though the restaurant assures us it's always available."
