We went for restaurant week and enjoyed an amazing meal. The steak tartare was heavenly and the duck breast entrée was absolute perfection! Our server Ariel was friendly and efficient. Definitely one of the best meals to be had in NYC.

From sausages to burgers to fish, you should be able to find something to eat here. The salmon ceviche was excellent as was the roasted salmon which was cooked perfectly. A wide variety of sausages which were tasty, and the burger with pulled pork delicious.
