We went to 1020 last night for an early dinner. it was our first visit to the place. First impression was a very nice space, with a great bar (much needed in this area) and a nice seating area.

I had the mussels in a safron broth. they were very fresh and tasty and the portion is quite enough for an entree. My wife had the braised short ribs that come with mash potatoes. the dish was great, the meat savory and the mash was a great complement. their mini burgers with the bread and butter pickle wedges were great as well.

the only strange thing was their home made potato chips smelled like fish. i did not realize it till the end of the meal and we let the waiter know. my guess is that they stored the potatoes near fish in the fridge and the smell permeated. i don't know. but it was strange.

Very nice meal altogether.
