The food that I have had here has been wonderful, but the service, hours, and menu have been so inconsistent that it's an unreliable option for me. It's a perfect place to stop by for a meal/snack while at First Friday or while hanging out at the Lost Leaf or on Roosevelt Row.

The staff are kind of flaky, though the woman I ordered a raw brownie from last night was very attentive and nice. It is a very casual, grassroots community style hangout.

The hours are more like 7pm to 3 am Tuesday - Thursday and 11am to 3 am Friday - Sunday closed Monday. This is the Union Meat Butcher's day off, why would this company take it off? Anyway, 4 employees entered the building through the front door once the restaurant finally opened and each had a live puppy dog in their arms. They took the dogs into the kitchen. 15 minutes later my brown lentil soup arrived. I ordered the lentil soup as a replacement to red tomatoes base on the pizza too. Was it dog shit soup on my food? I have no idea. I am on antibiotics this week, just in case, though. Moreover, puppies in the kitchen, and even behind the counter in the work area, are a health code violation.
