Fam, I’m not going to lie to you. When I walked in here to grab some drinks and some grub, all I wanted to do was turn around, go home and change. This place was bougie AF. Pressed-collar-with-a-blazer-ride-my-boat-on-Sundays kind of bougie. Surprisingly, when my friends and I asked for a table on a busy and poppin Saturday night, the hostess told us 15 minutes and we were like “WORD? iiiiii” and she escorted us to the bar. While we waited, I ordered a Yuzu cocktail which was pretty exceptional. Not to sweet nor bitter; refreshing and light with a pleasant citrus taste. I knew good things were coming.
We weren’t super hungry but we ordered food out of curiosity. I ordered the Spanish Octopus with fingerling potatoes, taggiasca olives, salsa verde, red sorrel and lemon. The portion wasn’t too big but the quality was on point. The Octopus had a perfect char and crisp. The potatoes were nice, tender and complemented so well. My plate was 20 something bucks (I think?) which can be pricey for some but I had no problem throwing cash for an exceptional meal, while pretending to ride my imaginary boat in the Hamptons.
