Tried this new venture in the old lower-QA Duke's space twice this weekend: once for a late dinner, and again for breakfast.

Atmosphere is super-pleasant. Service is eager, but still finding its rhythm. The food, though--even late at night, and during breakfast--is amazing.

Dinner included chicken satay salad, lamb shank, banana bread pudding, and a remarkable ice cream sandwich. Everything was wonderfully flavorful, yet at the same time very well-balanced. Meats were cooked perfectly: the lamb was supple, but not disintegrating. And the desserts were amazing, particularly the ice cream sandwich, which was pumpkin ice cream on ginger cookie.

Breakfast was just as good: fresh-squeezed orange juice, perfectly-executed eggs benedict, and a mind-blowing sweet-cream-cheese-and-raspberry-compote-stuffed french toast.

Prices are reasonable, and, if my experiences are any indication, there's a table waiting for you--head on in!
