found this hidden gem as it was the halfway point between our house and friends. Ate at a high top in the bar- wasn’t crowded so the noise level made it easy to have a conversation. Ordered several small plates to share including the meatball sliders, the salad with beets and the mussels. The mussels were so good we got a second order. Ended with salted Carmel gelato which was awesome. We will definitely return. More
