Foursquare Tips

  • Hilariously pretentious! Chef this. Chef that. Chef has giant birch-flavored (locally-sourced) stick up his ass. Comfort classics forgettably re-imagined. Desserts more like science projects. Pass.
  • Queen of Rainey St. Bridget Dunlap stakes a claim on the Eastside with this ber-hip bistro. Brunch's fried chicken with maple ice cream is a surefire win; cut the sweet with a New York sour.
  • Wednesday is %25 off bottles of wine!
  • You can't go wrong with the burger or flatiron steak. Cocktails are on point, great wine list and some great local beers on tap too.
  • I enjoy live music. But in a small restaurant with "mettle" walls (or some material equally sound-absorbent), it becomes a 2 hour meal of "huh?" & "what?". Come with folks you don't want to chat with.
  • The rhubarb julep and the side dish of beets with white chocolate (?!) are exquisite.
  • Slowest service I have ever had at a restaurant. We were there 4 almost 2 hrs. & the beef tongue tacos I ordered came out cold even after that. I'll go back, maybe the waitress was having a bad day...
  • The beef tongue tacos are killer. Get them.
  • The beef tongue tacos are one of the best things in town. Seriously.
  • Fried Chicken. It's got pickled veggies. Tasty!
  • Nice atmosphere for the same owners at Container Bar on Rainey. The Bloody Mary is legit, and the pork belly and kimchi sandwich will make you sing.
  • Pretty Pear cocktail is amazingly refreshing. Cerbois amagnac, lemon, and pear pure and sparkling wine.
  • Beautiful tomato salad.
  • Try the beets so beautiful and flavorful.
  • Their beef tongue tacos are great! Everything on the plate is made from scratch. The drinks are also very good. One of my favorite places to grab a bite.
  • The cow tongue tacos are delicious. Definitely a great date place or for a group of friends.
  • Kind of a sleeper hit- it's out of the way, but I've had a few really stellar meals here. Loved the tongue tacos, and my friends were quite pleased with the chicken.
  • Bar tender was on point, but other than that... Meh. Food was over priced, small portions, and frankly not very good. It is quite a bit pretentious and not for good reason.
  • The entire experience is beautiful. Space, service, ambiance...and the scallop crudo = best thing I've eaten 2014.
  • Cheeseburger is money! Sub cauliflower instead of fries.
