Visited on 12/12/12. Great ambience, great service. Had the brandade, Cuban, and bacon cheeseburger. All were delicious! My girlfriend had a crazy jalapeño/cucumber margarita. Stupendous. Will definitely come back next time we are in the city.

I enjoyed the food tremendously as it was very different from the normal fare at most restaurants (at least what I had). My appetizer was the Sidecar's Pork Belly Confit served over kimchi. The kimchi was not as "hot" as the Korean version but it...More
