Rise No. 1
Just like when you saw The Matrix for the first time and couldn’t stop wondering whether we’re all living in a simulation, after one trip to Rise No. 1, you’ll find yourself thinking about souffle frequently and at inopportune times - like midway through a meal anywhere else. Maybe the first time you bring someone here, they’ll be skeptical - it’s not everyday that you go to an almost all-souffle restaurant - but the food and service will convert them. They serve both sweet and savory varieties and it’s a great place to bring a parent or a date, or that one friend with a new dog because their patio is pet-friendly. Just make sure you’re selective about who you tell about this spot because it’s small and they don’t take reservations.
