relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and
boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in
the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the
vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores –
it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area.

Hi Monique, I only had lunch once there, and they did not seem to take reservations. They will let you share a table with others if there are empty seats.
