My wife and I happened upon this local eatery when we first moved to NYC. It's been one or our favorite restaurants ever since. Great food, very attentive and pleasant staff - and pleasant atmosphere make this an enjoyable haunt for a nice brunch, an afternoon of cocktails or a romantic dinner. Highly recommend the hummus starter with moracan cigars (goat cheese rolled in crushed pine nuts wrapped in roasted eggplant). Then a saba salad (apple, walnuts, cranberries, zesty honey dressing). Staff is great and if you go more than 1-2 a month they will remember you like an old friend.
Pros: great food, reasonable prices, pleasant staff/atmosp
Cons: no shade for patio
