Unpretentious, delicious, well priced, cozy but not too cozy. This is a great local haunt. It doesn't feel like a super New York type of a restaurant but that's not a problem. And there's a nice outdoor seating area as well which provides pretty good...More

Ate here twice during our week in New York. The food was excellent. Lots of flavour in every dish and really friendly staff.
