Pro Tip

"Scrumptious food accentuated by tall windows with brilliant natural light streaming through - it's the perfect setting for a weekend brunch with your special someone or a group of friends. "

Jessica Riady

Emily Gerth

In this hip, loftlike space "dinner and a movie" become one joyous event. Classic films like René Clément's noirish 1960 Purple Noon and Krzysztof Kieslowski's 1990 Blue are projected on a wall in a large inner courtyard while you're served perfectly shucked oysters on the half shell, warm brandade, house-cured sardines, chef-owners' Gayle Pirie and John Clark's excellent fried chicken, bavette steak, or seafood stew from the dinner menu.
