Dinner, Room, Lounges, Staff, Details... Nothing short of incredible! I tried the "Drink w/ No Name", the Pork Chops, Breakfast Pastries w/ Bacon and Eggs... Then pop by the lounge on the 3rd floor to grab a book on your way out on the town!

We do not have a Happy Hour but both food and drink in our lounge are nicely priced and the variety can't be matched. We hope to see you there.

Our restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lunch reservations are typically not required but still recommended trough open table. Our fabulous burger is $14 as a guide. Hope to see you soon.
