The place is really cool and the service friendly and welcoming. The food menu has some big hits, starting with the truffle pizza with an egg, just amazing. Also, the squash with prosciutto was nice and the sour cherry dessert. You can avoid the warm...More

popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
