I was there a month ago. Food was really good (7.5-8/10)
Service was not great, didn't care for the ambiance either.

BYOB was great though...

i don't really know anyone who went there. most people don't even realize it exists.

They have not done a good job marketing it. If I passed by it, I wouldnt think it is kosher

Who are the geniuses that pump money into these places?
You can ask that about any restaurant. If so many fail, why do people still try?
The people that have it, and believe this will be the next big thing in the neighborhood
3 partners, They already own a successful place and have been int eh industry for a while now. Menu looks good so lets see what happens. As long as they come out of the gate consistent, they should be OK.

Would we like to offer more to this conversation?

Didn't even last a year.

Wonder what their next genius ideas is.

You talking about GOAT? I went there a few weeks ago and actually enjoyed it a lot (part of the reason was because they we pretty empty though). Food was quite good.

i enjoyed their food but did think it was expensive for what it was. also portions got smaller with time.

guess i'm not really that surprised.


My next prediction is sunflower. i went to pick up food on a thursday night at 7:30 and there was not a single table occupied. i also spent 35 bucks on 2 dishes. that's crazy for milchigs

Thursday night for a cafe is not the best time to judge if they are busy. Go lunch time, Im sure they are busy then

Really? I would assume a dairy restaurant would do well on a Thursday

I heard they only took down the TV's to appease the VAAD. Does not seem like its closing down. Have you heard differently?
