Thanks @_elsajames_ we appreciate the sweet tweet! As for the wait…ugh.

Never in our wildest dreams when we signed our life savings away the lease did we think a wait would be our issue. And for that we are incredibly grateful and humbled.

In a few days we hit the three year mark (!!!), so thank you. For your support, for your appetite and for your patience while waiting for a table.

O’er The Ramparts

Yup it’s true, we will be closed over the holiday weekend. Come back on Tuesday, July 8th – we’ll be here.

In the meantime, indulge in hot dogs, hamburgers and corn on the cob. Just please don’t put ketchup on your hot dog, it’s just wrong.

see you upstate!

This is where the magic happens… #bronx

So while you folks are passed out because you can’t handle the high alcohol content of New York craft beers in the midst of a REM sleep cycle, we’re picking up fish – fresh off the boat. Literally.

And BTW we (husband) were the oldest by 100 years.

It started with hybrid cars, then hybrid dog breeds and now…Plan Check in Los Angeles is serving up Hama Hama’s as a hybrid snack & shot: Walk the Brine.

Surfer Rosa

Homemade simple. That’s what we’ve got planned for tonight’s menu by way of Plymouth Rock Oyster Growers.

hey thanks for the pix: bill doyle

Plucked from the intersection of Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth bays – cold, pristine waters that are nutrient rich and sent to us directly from grower Bill Doyle.

hey thanks for pix: bill doyle

They are exactly what a cold-water New England oyster should be. A clean, crisp taste that is both sweet & salty. #perfect
