“Our favorite "closet" restaurant. Great budget friendly Happy Hour from 4-6pm, great pizzas, wine, salads, and drinks. This is a locals spot, and one place to head if you just want something really close by. We also really love the Vietnamese restaurant two doors down called Bahn Town for a quick bowl of pho or Bahn Mi sandwich.”
