Everything looked and tasted great! per the feedback from the guests and hosts.

Great Menu and Wonderful Kitchen, open concept to the dining room yet raised by two step so while they could see us working the couldn’t see the chaos of preparing a 4 course meal for 11!  First Manhattan Kitchen with space to plate for 11!  It was an amazing evening!  Every single guest complimented us, it’s so rewarding when people realize and acknowledge the effort!

Eat Well…Be Well!
