  • This crowdfunded brick-and-mortar from the PushStart Kitchen supper club started serving in its small Home Park space in December. Go for the rotating menu, the robot mural, and the friendly service.
  • Great people, great food, nothing more you could possibly ask for!
  • Great food, fabulous staff. Sit at the chef's table & enjoy the show!
  • Nice folks. Great food. You can tell they put some love into what they make here. Waitstaff very knowledgable about the menu.
  • This will not disappoint! Go with the chef's tasting. And BYOB until they get their liquor license.
  • If they have it, get the 18 hour short rib.
  • Super creative new American cuisine with great drinks served in a casual, comfortable environment.
  • This cozy neighborhood restaurant has a Latin American inspired menu that changes daily. To get a feel of their tastes and creativity, we recommend trying the nine-course tasting menu.
  • When making your reservation call and see if they have space at the chefs counter
  • Everyone needs a taste of Better Halfs curry ice cream.
  • Try the canny version of crpes Suzette made with candied, pureed and fresh orange.
  • While the concise menu changes daily, one dish stays: Meloy's silk handkerchief pasta, folded around wild mushrooms and a sweet tomato marmalade, with porcini mushroom cream tying it all together.
  • There are trendy treats such as crunchy pig ear strips atop smoky charred broccoli, and dishes such as seared scallops over rice grits and chunks of ham hock.
  • Check out the powerful curry ice cream paired with apples and a warm white chocolate bread pudding.
  • Who needs dessert when the restaurants parting gift is a tin of cajetas de coco, Costa Rican milk truffles? Id buy these homey caramel-coconut treasures by the case.
  • If you sit at the bar, youll have prime seats to observe Meloys perfectionist tendencies as he instructs a new cook on composing plates like the griddled veal belly.
  • Tune into the nuanced flavors in dishes like the strawberry gazpacho ($9), a surprisingly savory soup with a touch of heat and only a gentle suggestion of the strawberrys sweetness.
  • Must get: pork belly dish with small cylindrical sopes placed catty-corner and filled with plugs of orange carrot puree. Squares of the perfect belly stood on their sides, leaning against fried masa.
  • Reservations needed and get there early as the seating towards the back offers an excellent view of the restrooms.
  • Grab a seat at the chef's table for a view of all the action!
