This is a great place for European bites and great Jazz. The menu is varied with some of the best sandwiches I have had and a great wine selection. What is not to like?

I hate to tell you how good this place is because it is very small and intimate and in the season (Jan. - March) it is already almost impossible to get into. They have all sorts of delicious goodies to eat and amazing wines served...More
