Fodor's Review

The neon sign above one of the two interior bars at what its chef calls the city's "most exclusively unexclusive" kitchen reads "awesome"—the perfect adjective for cooking that's both welcoming and groundbreaking. The sausage-and-lychee salad, made for stirring table-side into a coconut cream and habanero accompaniment that is as delightful as it is shocking, became an instant classic as hours-long lines formed outside this supremely stylish re-creation of a hipster's dream dinner party. It may take careful planning and patience, but scoring a table here is the experiential equivalent of their doughnuts topped with cheddar cheese: a worthy, witty home run.
