    Unfortunately they did not have the so famous Gnocchi. The mushroom flatbread was good, the tuna tartar and bacalao croquettes was OK. Make sure you call before if you are coming for the Gnocchi.

    While the unlimited mimosa deal at brunch is tempting, the What's Up Doc (ginger, carrot juice, orange juice, and gin) is where it's at. Plus, you'll only need two to get the job done.
