    Harper's Bazaar Says…

    A perfect venue for day or evening, this bar-style setting is part trendy speakeasy, part sleek city lounge.

Highly recommended is the pancetta with potted spicy aubergine, and the roasted squash, beet, and chestnuts salad. And we cannot think of a better way to start an evening than the ‘That’s Amore’ gin martini.
