Been wanting to come here for a while actually. It was one of the first places that caught my eyes while using the Chefs Feed app.But a really fun atmosphere with a sophisticated touch; great date place! That night I went with a small group and originally had a reservation for 9:30 on a Thursday, but decided to try our luck to get an earlier table. Was told that for busier nights it’s required to check-in with the bartender and check-in we did! Were able to snag a row of three stools around 8:45 and commenced our gastro-tour through some wonderful dishes. Favorite dish would definitely have to be Clam Chowder! Had some good bowls of the stuff, but this place’s chowder was wonderful! The biscuit was freaking impressive as well! Flaky as if it were rolled of filo dough and that little bit of honey was a nice touch. Besides the amazing decor, the service there was the best I’ve had in a while. Constant changing of utensils after each course, never had an empty water glass and the bartender Andrew was super friendly and helpful; learned a fun fact that the Wild Balon are unable to be farmed but must be harvested in the wild instead. A great time!
