It's truly one of my faves. It's a really impressive space - and sufficiently cavernous that even when it's busy it's not THAT crazy. Ok, fine, it can get packed, but the high ceilings make it better? I dunno.

Good beer menu, but I mean...don't go doing some crazy like asking for a negroni (I did this. Do as I say, not as I did).

Despite negroni gaffe, staff is awesome and I find getting...more
