The menu is small, but changes frequently. Try the Beef Bone Marrow, Cucumber Salad with Garbonzo, and Potato Latkes. Chef Ilan Hall dreams up the dishes has a young and well-trained staff.

The chef is best known as the kid who won the second season of "Top Chef." He builds dishes from the flavor up. These are not intellectual exercises.

If you're willing to risk eternal perdition for a menu item, try the bacon matzo ball soup - the soft matzo infused with chicken soup contrast perfectly with the bacon.

Great eclectic selection of food on the menu. And crazy wide variety of scotch.

Get the Nueske's bacon-wrapped matzoh balls, a delightfully tasty paradox in food tradition. Happy hours yield half-off all bar items, which will prove useful at The Gorbals' full bar.

A must for the single diner. Two options for seating: bar + chefs station. It's a 'this isn't awkward spot' for the Table for 1 crowd
