My husband and I had been waiting for this gem of a restaurant to open it’s doors. Snowed in this past weekend, we figured would be the perfect time to literally cross the street from our apartment, and walk over. Figuring, it wouldn’t be too crowded as we had a big snowstorm the day before.

We were wrong on that front. The lofty space was buzzing, but we luckily snagged two seats at the bar… the perfect seats to witness all of the action as the kitchen is open and filled with energy. Everything on the menu sounded delicious.. but we finally narrowed it down and went with two appetizers, two pasta dishes and a dessert, all to share of course. The best way to taste it all.
