Loved! Do not go if you're a vegan obviously. Went with a couple friends and the food was all pretty incredible. It's a pretty small joint with a nice backyard area and more of a communal style seating situation. We had the salumi board, the steak tartare, the merguez sausage which was served with this amazing chick pea situation, the pea & radish salad, braised pork belly and the bone marrow. The merguez and pork belly were so flavorful and my favorites. The bone marrow was just okay, but I always compare marrow to Blue Ribbon's so I don't think anyone else will ever win my heart over on that item...but all in all, a great time, really good service and a gigantic selection of beer. Only complaint was that they were out of 4 out of 5 gluten-free beers, as well as Tecate which my friend tried to get so I think they just need to be better at keeping things in stock. But other than that, awesome. I want to go back and try the lamb tartare....mmm.
