What can we eat?

You could try different dishes starting from risotto, salad or burgers. There’s a little bit of everything.

In addition, excellent beers are available from small American producers. My friend and I tasted their house special. I chose a must for this restaurant and for some the best of New York: the hamburger.

It was really good. The bread was original while being soft in the inside and crunchy on the outside with a great quality of ground beef, a delicious sauce and a slice of tomato served with a side of potatoes.

Is it better then Shake Shack?

Let’s just say that it’s not the same type of burger and the fact is that I am fan of small independent restaurants rather than the franchised ones.
