To start, this is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit the East coast. I seriously can't get enough of it and they never disappoint. We came to the restaurant yesterday, Sunday afternoon, for my grandmother's 90th Birthday. If anyone knows, or didn't, they do a blowout to sing Happy Birthday to someone. Lights off, disco lights...
