Giraffe is a chain of modern, buzzing restaurants that serve healthy food at all hours of the day, including a weekend brunch. It is a non-smoking restaurant and children are welcome.
We arrived at Giraffe around 7pm on a Wednesday. I was surprised to see how busy it was. Luckily, our party of 3 was seated right away.
