Cozy, friendly, and the food is wonderful. The preparation and presentation were impeccable. I highly recommend reservations. Only negative is the noise, but the food far out weighs that drawback.

Sorry, I don't. She changes offerings on a regular basis.....always delicious and intriguing. But if you call, they will tell you if there will be special menus for that night. Reservations are a must.
