We luckily found the place around 10 pm with the kitchen still open. The food and atmosphere was fine. Besides we had to wait for the bill for a little while, we would definately go there again!

play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
