Good food with great menu. Portions were rather big, but we see that more in NY. The location is not that big, but still a good atmosphere. Friendly staf and the pricing is not top end, good money-value

Nice little gem. We were looking for someplace close to the Irish Rep Theatre. You might want to make a reservation as it is a small space. Started off with the spare ribs - 4 tasty and tender treats with plenty of meat. Enough for...More
