Intimate setting, great seats, reasonably priced and the BEST Blues in town!! We saw Darlene Love and her awesome band/back-up singers perform! Basically, an emotional and religious experience! WHY HAS NYC ALLOWED THIS MUSICAL LANDMARK TO CLOSE?!?!?!?!

The ribs are fall off the bone and delicious. Our meals, 4 bone rib diner, had good portions. Our server Michael was great. He looked after us well. Music was great. An overall great evening.
