  • Went there yesterday — Wild boar rigatoni was great! Also, get a side order of their carrots, trust me. 🙂

    Are they planning to spruce up the exterior to match the menu? Looks like a disconnect between the two (at least for now)

    I live directly across the street. This place will be a significant disappointment if they do not offer takeout sandwiches like those sold out of the El Floridano food trucks.

  • @Boom, We have an art installment coming in from Fire Studio (Pleasant Plains) Tues/Wed.
    @Anon, as soon as I feel confidant my crew can handle it we’ll start takeout of the sandwiches and full menu.
    We hope to see you soon.

        Great news Stephan!

  • I love it when a Kickstarter comes together! Happy to try it out soon. Bonus points for more than one vegetarian option.

    I live across the street and am wondering if the two food trucks are still going to be parked outside of the restaurant.

    Great restaurant and nice crew. The food is outstanding and I am looking forward to sitting outside in the summer! Thanks for landing in the neighbourhood, mothership!
