This restaurant is at the top of Portland's rapidly gentrifying Munjoy Hill. It's a small place with an eclectic menu of dishes that you won't find anywhere else in Portland. The wait staff is exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu, attentive, courteous, and provides quality service....More

Very small space, inside seating probably 50 people max. It does have outside seating, but call ahead for reservations. Decent local beer selection, and good but not great food for the price.
