As a New Yorker and a foodie sometimes I can't really feel like I can't find something new. Boy was this place that. Their poutine duck fat fried french fries were amazing.

The food was really great but we felt very rushed. To be fair, it was very busy and a small place but we had to wait an hour and half for a table and spent only a half an hour there. My recommendation would be to call in a takeout order and eat it outside in the sunshine where you... More

We stopped for lunch. Obviously the fries and dipping sauces are amazing! My husband and friends got 3 different paninis and loved them. I got the tomato fennel soup and the market greens salad! So fresh and lovely flavors! A great spot for sure!

The fries are outstanding, the poutine to die for. And I strongly recommend the shakes. I have not had anything there that I did not like.

Everyone we spoke to, said we needed to try this place, so our expectations were high. We were not disappointed. We went for dinner and was a expecting a long wait - we were told 20 minutes- not bad.

Good food reasonably priced. Small menu but everything seemed to be made well. Sat at the bar and it was fun to watch the chefs at work. Try the truffle ketchup with your fries.
