This seems to cater more to younger folk. We simply had a burger because we were short of time, but it was excellent and the server attentive. Apparently one needs a reservation - it started to fill up around 5:45 - 6:00

The burger was fantastic. Nice variety of menu items. Caesar salad was fresh, crisp and enough for 2 as an appetizer. Pleasant atmosphere. Fantastic location just steps from the Avon Theatre and around the block from the Studio Theatre.
