if you love cheese and meat......
want to sample top of the line meats and cheese? get yourself to this place! Lovely chef tasting menus! BYOB but they managed to get a state liquor store in the restaurant! GO figure! Don't want a big bottle, no problem, get a small bottle of wine to go with your food. There is also a deli with cheese, meats olive oil and balsamic vinegars to buy! Where else can you taste $50/lb Iberian black pig for a fraction of the cost?!!! I am never moving out of this neighborhood!
Great food and atmosphere.
It's understandable for a restaurant that does not offer reservations o have a long wait but an hour and 20 minutes was not worth it. The food was excellent and service by the waiter good but bot 100% attentive. The person who I am assuming was the manager on duty, a tall good looking guy with a shaved head served up unfriendly and uninviting attitude. I caught a few of his facial expressions as he walked away from tables that were down right rude. This guy needs to change his attitude if your going to work in such a lovely place.

The charm of a European-style market is reflected at this full-service gourmet market and café owned by culinary star Jose Garces. Café seating for European bistro fare is located in the center of an epicurean circus that dizzies the senses with hanging charcuterie, imported oils, Garces’ signature coffee and prepared foods for take-out. Then, to further transport shoppers to the Old Country, the offerings are complemented by a patisserie, a fromagerie, a flower mart, and even a wine shop.
