When this place first opened last winter, my girlfriend and her old roommate used to frequent it because they wanted it to grow and prosper because they loved the food, so they took me last night for a quick bit. Now, I have been here before, but only on Sunday, I'm hung-over, brunch, so some food off of the real menu sounded rather appetizing.
