Casual spot to sit outside, enjoy some good food and company, and watch the Ferraris and Maseratis drive by. Had the New England clam chowder and enjoyed it. Great staff, very attentive.

Very fun atmosphere! Great food, great service. Quick, and attentive! If you like Mediterranean food, this place is a treat. I tried the beef tips, and carmelized onions over baba ghanough. I licked the plate CLEAN!
