Had an opportunity to try this new gem of a place and was not dissappointed! This cozy restuarant is sure to satiate anyone w a fine dining palate. My dishes included roasted baby carrots w coconut composed of tender roasted carrots with a spicy dusting of what tasted like a curryish mixture of exotic spices and some sort of dairy product to cool the pleasant heat of the dish. This was followed by a buccatini pasta dish with a red wine reduction, bacon and the freshest uni (sea urchin) crowning this absolutely fantastic dish. I could have been totally satisfied but also had orderd the roasted chicken thinking pasta dish would be tiny-which it wasn't. the chichicken was cooked to perfection and would rival the one I recently had at NoMad's san fois gras. I really contemplated writing about this place for fear it would become so popular it would be difficult to get reservations but what the heck-this is a keeper!! They serve both wine and hard drinks as well.
