This place is small and pretty sparsely decorated, but the food here is excellent. You’ll see things like onion petals in sherry vinegar, cheese puffs that you’ll want to be passed around at every wedding you attend from then on, and suckling pig with nectarine they serve with skin that’s crispier than any Peking duck could ever approach. It's pretty affordable for the quality you get here, with the mains all under $40, and it's a great spot to go to when you want to impress someone, but don’t want a blowout meal.
