Don't know what took us so long to try this restaurant. We generally don't get past Union. The food is excellent. Tried oysters on the half shell with blood orange sauce (migonnette?) a sauce so good we sopped it up with our bread; simmered mussels with frites (Frites on a par with Sel de la Terre's): braised veal with orecchiette noodles; and for dessert a creme brule.

Ate at the bar and the service was very attentive and friendly.

According to the bartender the menu changes daily based on available ingredients, so there are no off menu specials
