WE THINK: Great little spot in hip and leafy Palermo Soho. Perfect for a shopping time-out or a late-night snack with options that go beyond steak and empanadas. If the weather permits, sit outside and order a couple of tasty starters (like we did) or some of the good-looking mains (like those next to us did) - all artistically illustrated in the ring-bound menu. We enjoyed our prawn skewers and rice balls the most, but were also fortunate to try our friend's rōsti starter and tasty lamb main course. The sweetbreads were well-cooked but the seasoning and garnish a bit too bland to give the dish flavour.
OUR TIP: Check the address before you go as we were told the restaurant will soon move to a new location a few blocks away.
