Foursquare Tips

  • Don't sit at my table. I have a favorite table here but won't tell you which one because then you'll sit there. So just be smart and don't sit at my table. All the eggs are delicious.
  • Same owner as Buttermilk Channel so it's gonna be great. Apps: half lobster and sardines w/ bread + butter. Main: Pappardelle w/ oxtail ragu. Love the walnut bitters in Normandy Old Fashioned.
  • Smoked sardines are unmissable.
  • Get the anything on the menu
  • The Creme Brle French toast is killer
  • Steak frites are where it's at, but don't forget to get some fried artichokes for the table
  • House-smoked sardines from Rhode Island with rye are just the thing to start dinner. Yes, the giant slab of butter is studded with dulse, a kind of red algae, and yes, it's totally delicious.
  • Great brunch, friendly staff very on top of service, just right sized portions (not fatso American super sized, sorry), delicious coffee!
  • Sit at the bar to feel extra spoiled and attended to for dinner. Every dish we had was excellent, and the bartender's knowledge of wine pairings was spot on.
