Met a friend for lunch. Good standby spot to met friends; always reliable. Particularly nice if you want to hang with friends in off-hours.

If you want a lot of food, for not a ton of money, especially in the middle of a fairly upscale mall, this is the place. It was a cold day and we got hot soups served with a big, free basket of bread and...More
