This is a versatile spot that reminds us of Dusek’s in Pilsen (which isn’t too surprising, since it’s from the same folks). It serves great modern American food, but has other things going for it, too, like its huge outdoor patio and upstairs music venue. You’re here for house dishes like pierogi ravioli and prawns dejonghe, but you can also get a great cheeseburger. Plan ahead, though - since it’s a destination restaurant, you can count on it being crowded.
