Ichabod's Restaurant Review

: While the space can feel sort of dark and moody, the sunny service and bright dishes at this neighborhood locale make up for it. The cocktail list is divided into two parts: more inventive drinks (think bourbon with strawberry and rhubarb bitters) and standards like the Sazerac. The wine list is somewhat abbreviated, with a few big Italian heavy-hitters throwing off the otherwise moderately priced assortment. Servers are attentive, and great for a recommendation. Crispy artichokes are cooled down by a tangy pecorino yogurt, and the butternut squash dumplings with brown butter, truffled chestnuts and sage are spotted on almost every table. Grilled halibut keeps things light over a mix of seasonal vegetables and a lemony vinaigrette. But the crispy pork shoulder atop roasted carrots and romesco is intensely satisfying. A sundae finished with whipped marshmallow is the way to go if you want something sweet to round out dinner.
