This restaurant / bar has great food it's a little on the pricey side but I would definitely give it a try. It's dark inside and sometimes they have live music.

We liked our pork belly appetizer so much, we got a second one for our fourth small plate rather than trying something different. The crispiness and flavor of the pork are excellent. Comes with arugula and balsamic dressing.

The batter and texture of the fried green beans were great, but they had no flavor. Even with two helpings of salt, they were just missing taste. Don't know if someone forgot the seasoning. But it made us afraid to get any of the other fried veggies.
A lot of the appetizers are fried. So if you're doing a tapas meal, it's challenging to avoid. Many also have cheese. So will limit options if lactose intolerant.

Loved the restored rustic brick decor. Most of the seating you are side by side with strangers. So it may not be the best place for intimate or private business conversation.

They have call ahead seating. Use it to gauarantee a place without a wait on weekend nights.

You'll like the feel of this place almost as much as the food. Original brickwork walls, tin ceiling and open atmosphere make it quaint and fun. We loved the food also - though we noticed a conspicuous absence of salt. Not that we use a lot of salt at home, but we noticed that the fried green tomatoes appetizer was very tasteless until we added salt. Same with everything that came after - not sure if the chef tastes the food or if they're overly concerned with people's sodium intake. I'd still check this out, because the food otherwise was very good and showed real talent.
