    Just coming out of Covid indoor dining restaurant reticence. Ordered a salad and the filet mignon. Salad was greens, walnuts and a sprightly dressing….quite good. Filet arrived…..a HUGE slab with herb butter melting on top, perfectly cooked and nestled on a bed of sautéed spinach. A tin container of truffled fries included. Now, I’ve had a lot of fm…and I make a damn decent filet myself. But this was, off-the -chain Fabulous…no joke, the BEST filet I’ve ever had. And I’ve been eating in NYC’s best restaurants for years. And the truffled fries, OMG, just shoot me now. The perfect amount of truffle to not overwhelm, but enhance. No, I don’t work for Cave. Not a personal friend of the chef. (Last time I was there was pre-pandemic and they were advertising as paleo.) They also do take-out for everything on their menu. Run, don’t walk. It’s that good. Really.

    Birthday dinner with friends. What a cute local BYOB bistro. Based on a gluten-free menu, everything was fresh and well presented. Specials of the day were a sea bass and Peking-style duck dish. Other friend had the special bison-duck & fried-egg topped burger!!

Amazing food with a great casual atmosphere.. you feel like you are in your own kitchen only you don't have to prep, cook or clean up!

    love the atmosphere - our waitress was great. Food is always good. Only thing i would say is that for all the french fries they serve they should make a home made ketchup to go with it (they dont serve any because of the sugar...) definitely will be back
