I love going there in the holidays and sitting on their heated patio overlooking the ice skating rink and tree. The food is always amazing, wine list is great, and the happy hour is phenomenal.

A friend and I found this spot while we were out walking around downtown. We were lucky to have found it. They were serving brunch. She had pasta bolognase, I had the truffle frittata. Mine was devine! Our server Josh was awesome too.
