If you didn’t know:

"it’s not a restaurant. it’s a dinner party. it’s the intersection between food, music and art. it’s an exploration in social dynamics. it’s friends, old and new. it’s fleeting and always changing. no menus. no dress code. no pretense.

it’s dining in its most raw form: people food and open minds…”
