Nice place , food was good. Could have used more flavour... a bit simple. They didn’t offer any Parmesan cheese and fresh pepper when our pasta arrived. We had to ask for it, I would go back as my teenage kids loved the parmesan wheel pasta as it was a hit for them. More

Contemporary American | Union Square, Manhattan

i like that it is in the neighborhood. The service was good. The ambience was okay. The bar is noisy, but the restaurant is quieter than many restaurants in this neighborhood. The prices are ok, but the menu is limited. The chicken parm was big and crispy but doesn't come with anything, so you have to order a side, which is annoying. I actually didn't love it, but if i wanted a nice restaurant nearby, i would return. More
