BEST LOUNGE ON COLUMBUS and THE UPPER WEST SIDE! I have been here over 10 times in one month- its addicting. The drinks are made not to waste a DROP! Try the espresso martini, key lime mojito martini, lura cosmo , death by chocolate- Alexay the bartender is an expert ! They have sexy Saturday specials and martini Wednesdays . Chef Mike's selections are fresh, creative and pleasing to the eye. My favorite is the eggplant rollatini, sun-dried tomato humus, the ferges (owners wife's recipe) with pita, the fresh margarita pizza,calamari and mushroom panini. As I said, I just had to keep on coming back! They always have a new item on the menu - love the variety. Atmosphere is perfect for a date, night out with friends or chilling on your own , upstairs is quiet downstairs is social. This Thursday they wowed me with Jazz- awesome band! The staff is what really makes this place awesome - being in hospitality this is what is most important to me-this melange is what deserves a 5 star rating.
