Great evening. A little loud but other than that, fabulous. The service was exceptional. I wish I could remember her name. She was so knowledgeable. She explained everything in detail and worked closely with someone in our group to accommodate food allergies. The food was delicious too. There were 7 of us and we were all beyond pleased. From drinks, to appetizers, to main courses, to sides, and finally desserts, we were truly all so pleased that I hesitate to mention any one particular item. Try anything and you’ll be happy you did. I hope to go back again soon.

Absolutely fabulous and very creative Eastern European menu. Loved the potato kugel, the steak and chicken are amazing creations. The haluski with lamb and the dumplings are amazing. Love the beet salad. Basically we tried everything and loved all of it. Kudos to chef Brandon.

Been waiting for this to open for awhile and did not disappoint. Realize this is a restaurant in the first floor of a hotel, but they did a tremendous job of creating a very unique space. Service was excellent and we were well versed on what was on the menu. Probably one of the most pleasant surprises was the wine list. Everything was unique, focused on the theme of the food Eastern European, and had a Georgian wine, Doqi (which never heard of in my life) that was outstanding and really refreshing to have something "new." Definitely recommend the Khachapuri, bread with cheese, butter and poached egg. We got lucky and Brandon sent out the Sauerkraut for us to try. Incredible. Dill, celeriac, lots of paprika. Planning on going back for Happy hour sometime and having just a bottle of the Doqi and 4 orders of Sauerkraut and would be more than content. Chicory and Beet salads were fantastic. Can guarantee nothing you've tried before...well at least I haven't. The Potato Kugel was very light, flavorful and almost an entree more than a side dish. As with everything else, the honey cake was unique, crumble with sour cream dressing and some apple butter to finish. Can't recommend it enough. Been waiting a year and high expectations but exceeded them. So glad to have Brandon's cooking available again and great for an event or just a good dinner night out.

The Brick Shop was absolutely excellent. The food was perfectly seasoned and homey, but very elevated. My favorites were the beets and the kraut. The staff was always checking in to make sure we had everything we needed and all of our questions were answered - Chef Brandon came out and did the same, which is always a nice touch. Can't wait to come back!
