We had a great brunch here, which we paired with the unlimited 1-hr boozy brunch option. The waiter was attentive as was the manager who spoke with us at the end of our meal. Great flavors, great drinks, and overall a wonderful experience.

Right from the moment we entered we were really looked after. The atmosphere was brilliant, the food even better (would eat here regularly if I lived in NY) and the Jalapeño cocktail very enjoyable. Would recommend (especially the blackened cod main course).

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
