    Get the lamb/pork pasta. They're more like little pillows of dumpling.

    Brunch and happy hour here are great. Pancakes and French toast are always changing, and chilaquiles are good too. I'd get the London Burning cocktail when going to brunch.

    Bone marrow! And once done, ask server to bring you some bourbon! Because the bone makes an awesome vessel to drink with!! Ask for valerie. Best server there
