The Daisy is the seatbelt of restaurants - it’s safe and overall pretty standard. You’ve likely tried most things on their menu at some point in life and said “yeah I like that food,” like salmon, mushroom risotto, and burrata. It’s usually easy to get a table here without waiting and they have outside seating on the sidewalk when the weather is nice.
