  • DGirl

    And what’s the ubiquitous dessert made with said kumquats?

    key limes.

  • Marin R

    (other page but I didnt see a comments section)

    just wanted to say thanks for that review

    we abhor the “typical” trickery played upon the public with which many a restauranteer plays on the public

    But many times the public wants to be or doesnt care if its being tricked

    they just want to be part of the scene

    they can have it

    I though Samaar the same, BTW

    trendy with a name chef but nothing special nothing tastier than others

    just a place to be

    those places are needed for the masses
    I get it
