The menu is eclectic, offering a variety of small plates to be shared. Their cocktail list is also quite innovative, featuring a variety of sips for $12 with playful and interesting ingredients. The Elderflower Gimlet composed of Death’s Door Gin, Fiorente Elderflower, and Housemade Lime Cordial should not be overlooked.
