One of the best meals I've had this year! This place is a gem--stylish, casual, and the food and service are a cut above. The vegetarian menu option was creative and beautifully plated--a mix of crispy rice balls, gingered squash, spiced peanuts, Asian greens. Husband had the flank steak and was impressed. Glad we saved room for dessert--the apple bread pudding with butter sauce and burnt-sugar almonds was sensational. More

I would recommend due to proximity to the NAC. However, food needs review. Decor needs work. Example. I understand the bare tables for lunch perhaps but simple white tablecloths would create an upscale atmosphere. Food was inconsistent. Chowder was excellent, bocconcini salad was blah. Steaks were ok, potatoes were very blah and over cooked. More
