Very expensive, food was pretty good. It's family style, so expect to share... everything. Staff was great and the back patio is nice. Just not my cup of tea. The kewpie was delicious, but honestly the most memorable thing about this place was the bread and chard butter.. which costs $4/piece and you get about 2-3 slices. Fun idea, just not completely in love with the price to food ratio.

Excellent craft cocktails, but you will pay craft cocktail prices. The staff is very friendly and the outdoor area is one of the best I've seen in the neighborhood. Like always, parking is a challenge when it's busy so be prepared to walk a bit.

This place has a young and trendy atmosphere. Their happy hour whiskey sours for $5 were perfect. Only complaint was that the menu wasn't very descriptive (didn't know over half of the ingredients) and they didn't really have anything like an appetizer. We'll come back for the drink happy hour though.
