Fabulous restaurant near the University. Excellent vibe as the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Peter, the owner / chef, is someone that Lafayette is enormously lucky to have in our city. Interesting and novel approaches that end up being remarkable.

Riley was very personable. When we asked him about a menu item, he was very knowledgeable and we appreciated his input. Riley was also very patient with us as we wanted to visit before we placed our foos order. The food and the ambiance was wonderful. We have each been there before, but will return.
