A “hip spot” in the “otherwise unhip Upper East Side” , this “lively” gastropub lures “younger” types with a “trendy” scene fueled by “delicious burgers” and other “enjoyable” American bar bites; a “Brooklyn vibe” and “rustic” looks make it a “welcome alternative” in the neighborhood.

Great boozy brunch. The beet bloody Mary is wicked (both ways). Service is fast and friendly. Love the decoration of wood and old vintage stuff, like being in a flea market. The best place I've been so far in NYC. Definitely recommend, prices are totally reasonable regarding we're in the upper east side.

Great brunch place! Make sure to make reservations, but there are seats at the bar usually early on, so if you don't have a reservation, you can get there early and still get seated quickly which is great. The food was pretty good, but the drinks were even better!

Warm setting with wood, dried wildflowers, copper glasses and "old-stuff" decoration. Friendly and fast service. Decent cocktails and good food. The fried oysters sandwich was a tasty surprise! The smoked salmon salad was extremely generous.
