Now, of course there are tables, but, I actually recommend sitting at the bar. At one end, there's a raw oyster bar, and scattered throughout you'll find romantically wax-drip coated bottles. The menu sounded great, and I couldn't just decide on one thing. So, I got two starters that stood out to me instead. The first thing that I ordered was Hamachi Crudo, smoked tomato ponzu, yuzu kosho, garlic chips and peppercress.

One of the best meals I have had. The food was delicious and the wine was awesome and inexpensive. The ambiance was also really cool, they have made much better use of the space than Porch did when it was located there. The staff was attentive and really nice. The executive chef is also really nice and came out to made sure we were enjoying everything. I would highly recommend dinning here.
Great food! Everything was delicious, and elegant. Not to expensive, a great place to hang out. The Chef is amazing! Definitely a place someone should go to eat. All of the staff was very nice also.
