We stopped at this place without reservation right before it got packed. We started with the pub cheese and it was pretty good and it came with pistachios brittle. The smaller brittle pieces were good, but the large piece was too hard. We then had the rye pasta with pastrami and it was tasty, but I wished there was more of it. Next was the Arctic char and it was good, but a very small portion. It was funny to see the reaction of the guy who was sitting next to us to the size of their dishes. Well, this was a small plate place after all. Maybe they should have two different size portions. The only thing that was average was the root beer pudding. Service was fine and the place was super loud and busy during our dinner. We did see Chef Wylie Dufresne of the famed Wd~50 and Top Chef Masters, making sure everything was running smoothly considering they had opened this place not long ago.
