The ambience at this BYOB is really neat and very artistic. The Cuisine is new since Brian Held has taken over this Lambertville Landmark. Brian has brought some of his famous dish along with him and they seem to be a real success.

This review is based on a dinner we had right after the ownership changed hands. Consequently, I am assuming that they were still getting acclimated to the new environment. We all had starters and main courses. Nothing stood out as truly excellent. Instead we thought...More
