Zagat Survey


"There's 'something for everyone' at this 'upscale-funky' Rosendale New American offering 'affordable' eats from 'straightforward' sandwiches and burgers  (the veggie version is "fabulous") to 'inventive' dishes with an Asian 'spin'; a 'thoughtful' crew adds to the 'comfort vibe', so factor in 'couture martinis', a 'fantastic beer list' and an 'inviting', 'breezy' garden and 'it's the kind of place you want to be a regular.' "
