Given the choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Close to C train but not in downtown. Excellent menu choice, interesting cocktails, helpful staff.

Went to Alloy with my wife and kids for the first time for Mothers Day. Kind of a cool, tucked away location, with nice decor, decent ambience and great food. The menu was somewhat limited but everything was tasty. I had a short rib hash...More
