While the service was just average, the food was excellent. My guest and I both had Bulgogi (Spicy pork, and beef). They were very tasty. The floor to ceiling windows are wide open on a nice day, making it feel like you are seating outside.

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
