We were pretty underwhelmed at our visit to this trendy spot. The menu is pretty minimalistic and a bit on the pricey side for what you get. The upholstery on the couch that we were seated at was filthy with old coffee and food stains.

Good food at this Diners, Drive-In, and Dives restaurant. Funky fusion food in a nice looking restaurant. Prices are average, not overly expensive. Restaurant was crowded the day we went.

It is probably 10 minutes away depending on traffic. It is located on El Paseo, second floor, next to Sacks 5th Ave. You might call for a reservation since your group is large. You will enjoy it, food is delicious and... More
