The menu features Chef Santos’ signature multi-ethnic dishes including: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Dumplings, Tuna Poke Wonton Tacos, Oven Braised Chicken Meatballs, and Tomato Tartare. For the first time, outdoor seating has been introduced to the brand with a ground floor courtyard and a patio on the second level.

Just a wonderful experience. Spent close to $400 for two but it was worth it

Took my wife for her birthday as a last hurrah before self quarantining in earnest and could not have been happier. Food and staff were tremendous and when a situation arose with a customer at the table next to us who was being belligerent for reasons that, two days later, no one in our party understands, management and security were incredibly supportive and accommodating. We can't wait to return in the future.

Grilled cheese dumplings were amazing! Charred broccoli also delish, and I highly recommend the scallops!

Food and drinks were great. Service was great as well but only thing that was a little annoying was when people would constantly come around asking to remove our plates when there was still a good amount of food on it. At one point, we were asked a 4th time so just allowed them to take it away out of not wanting to be asked about it again. Other than that, the rest of our experience was good.

First we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated and we finally got our tables. Our server was very short and kept leaving the table as we were trying to order! The food was good but I don't think we would go back there.
the music was too loud as well.
