Very attractive restaurant. The space. The food. All looks so good. I'm very much looking forward to another visit, and bringing friends or family. Selfishly, I wish they were open on Sundays, as I'm generally working all the other days.More

There is a small bar area at the front of the restaurant. The only University Club I know of is at Vanderbilt University near the football stadium.
