Awesome atmosphere - funky decor with infectiously happy dancing chef in the open kitchen area. Excellent goat cheese ravioli dish. Really enjoyed the sparking maracuya (passion fruit) drink. Other dishes good but not great like the ravioli.

For New Years Day, you do need to make reservations, but they don't open until 9 pm or later for that holiday. Otherwise, I think they open at 8 pm for dinner
