  • The humble egg stars is revelatory in one of the restaurant's best entrees: An egg poached and then deep-fried, served open-faced with a celery salad and ramp mayo on a home-made English muffin.
  • Don't gloss over the specials when your server swings by, you most definitely do not want to miss out on the 24oz on-the-bone Cowboy Steak when it's available. #yolo
  • Sit upstairs & order the fireplace creme brle. They bring a red hot branding tool out of the fireplace and toast it with goodness. It tastes a s'more on top. It will change your life.
  • The fried poached egg sandwich is insane. It's a poached egg. Somehow, fried, with the yolk still running. Boggles the mind.
  • The rose lemonade is refreshing (and comes in a cool bottle)!
  • Breakfast sandwich is amazing - runny egg, gooey cheese, and tasty bacon on a perfect english muffin.
  • Poached egg sandwich! Go for it!
  • Sit by the fireplace in the winter. Be warm.
  • Perfect place to sit at the bar, have a few drinks, and cobble together a meal of small plates. The menu has a strong farm to table bent.
  • The softshell crab roll is out of control.
  • the pulled pork sammy was tres magnifique. get a side of acorn squash tempura instead of your standard fried potato.
  • Fun spot! Get the poached egg sandwich and enjoy life as a changed person.
  • Good people watchin' here if you grab the right seat at the bar. Lots of fancy people in these Soho parts.
  • Food is universally excellent, but service is slow, inattentive and overall, leaves a lot to be desired.
  • Pulled pork sandwhich is good; not too much sauce, solid taste. Add the rosemary fries.
  • Great rustic spot for warm weather brunch. The fried poached egg sandwich. Yeah. Uh, YEAH.
  • Those Brussels sprouts. MMM.
  • Aqui muito bom!!!
  • If you're here for dinner, try the grilled wild king salmon. It's surprisingly delicious. It comes with a lemon beurre blanc sauce. Get it medium rare and let it melt in your mouth.
  • Perfect for a late-afternoon sugar hit. Sneak upstairs for an order of the caramel pudding & pecan and fig pie.
