It's official. I just found my new neighborhood haunt. This place is finally open after like two years or so of construction and I couldn't be more pleased to have it in the area. I've been twice now since it opened and have walked away happy each time. The food is great and the vibe in there is a welcome change to some of the places that have popped up around town. Laid back and welcoming. Very cool. Will be glad when they open for lunch as I also work around the corner.
