Lol, I was there a few minutes before you posted. I got some sides. Truly delicious. Smallish menu, but person standing by the counter was super nice, and the food was very good and wholesome. I hope they make it. South side of Lakewood could definitely use more options.

The menu. There are a couple more options on the back of the menu.

Their menu has more diverse options than other Lakewood places. You may want to try lamb or veal etc. which is not on the menu elsewhere in Lakewood iinm.

Also, their short ribs rice ball appetizer is great imo.

Steaks are excellent. But I found the steaks at Entrée excellent as well. So I usually take advantage of the things not on Entree's menu...
