The 6 train to the Bleecker Street train stop will take you very close to this nice looking restaurant. You walk up about 10 steps to enter this restaurant, often crowded due to its popularity. The restaurant has MANY good and surprisingly different dishes (see...More

Loved the creative, delicious food. Dimly lighted, pretty room. Excellent service. I asked our waiter to choose my wine by the glass, based on what we ordered. He asked how adventurous I am (very) and selected unusual, perfect wines. He even suggested doing 2 half...More

This place has the best dumpling pasta in the city. The steak tartare is a must as well. Pretty small place so make reservations or get there early. Bartenders are always friendly and you can take your chances walking in too.

It's not small, it's intimate. Attention to detail is the theme. Series of small plates each deliberately prepared. Service is great. If you complain about the price then u are unaware of how the world works.
