Beautiful restaurant with fresh, local ingredients and a pleasant staff. The Bahn Mi sandwich was terrific. The meat strata was good, but not great. The salads were fresh and delicious.

The food is good; the wait is not worth it. I think the reason it is always so busy is that it sits at the bottom of the hill from Cornell.
