I was in the area today so I swung by just to ask a few questions and pick up the menu and wine list.

The menu is pretty giddy inducing - at least for strange old me - who is now fascinated by anything that smacks of Alta Cocina (after experiencing Frida).

Alice - I am sorry I couldnt answer you very well yesterday - this is next on my radar. I think I might save it for my birthday in a month - because it is quite exciting.

Jim Strain and Phee first posted about this place in some classic Chowhound style posts.

First of all - I love the design and ambiance.

They just started serving breakfast on the weekends - which is tempting, to say the utter least.

See the Breakfast Menu:
- Fresh pressed Juices
- House made marmalades
- Pan dulce - Baked in House
- Pancakes with cajeta and bannanas
- HR
