Walk through the door and get ready to be transplanted to 1952, no make that 1982 based on all the amazing photos surrounding this great restaurant. Maybe you are like me and have always known about this place, but have never had a chance to eat there. Let that no longer be an option – this is a must visit restaurant. I had the trout cakes with a side of pickled beets and mashed potatoes with gravy. Mmm, pickled beets and mashed potatoes and gravy… I left so full I thought I was going to explode. On top of the great food, the service was exceptional. These were among the nicest servers I’ve ever encountered in my life.

Perhaps making this experience sublime was spotting a photo of “Michael” from the classic tv show “Good Times”. Yeah that “Good Times”, you know – Keeping your head above water making your way to the top, temporary layoffs…

And if you thought it couldn’t get any better than that: Check out the photo of Councilmember Carol Schwartz circa, I don’t know, 1981?

Go here and go hungry. I only hope they can survive all the development going on around them. Can they?
