This restaurant is in a busy mall. The seating is cramped. The food is ok. The prices are high. I ate there at the request of a friend. Never again.

I'm sorry, I can't answer that question. I've only eaten lunch and dinner there.
I need to plan a dinner for 40+ people from a Sears meeting on Wednesday Night 3/8. could the restaurant handle such a large group and would we be able to plan a menu. Please Call Savitri Cohen 845-490-1715.
