Get to this place before its over-run with hipsters. This local restaurant, is exactly what we all look for in a Manhattan bistro. Excellent service, really good and imaginative food (with a nicely changing but not pretentious menu), and great atmosphere... all helped along by an owner who cares enough about his restaurant and your comfort that he is there to make sure you enjoy yourselves. Its just a great, casual place that is good value and sure to be a hit in the neighborhood.
Pros: cool - corduroy seats, casual - friendly, good value
