Definitely worth stopping for lunch. The food was full of flavor and delicious. If you're on the waiting list, you'll never get in unless you are persistent to check in. She'll leave you sitting outside until they're no longer serving lunch.

Great place in many ways: creative combinations of flavors, good service, and a nice bustling energy (it's quite popular). For vegetarians, though, it's not as good as it could be. The pear salad is consistently delicious, but the veg entree is consistently disappointing. Most recently...More
