Thanks for mentioning this Upper. Never heard of it before, but the menu looks great and surprisingly, not outrageously priced. When you say "decent" though, do you mean "not really all that good"?
The food, while not exemplary, is still very good, though it cannot compete with the interior (at least of the main dining room), which has been gloriously restored to its Edwardian/Art Deco glory. Please understand too that, from the street, the place looks like a small cafe - it is only when one goes downstairs that this enormous elegant brasserie (with adjacent lounge) appears, quite unexpectedly.
Gangster Squad! Tibor, this is awesome in so many levels!
Thank you Sir. The L.A.P.D. Organized Crime Division, then named the "Hat Squad" led one of the most effective battles against Organized Crime in American History. It is an honor to be compared to those Heroes.
Tibor, I've said this a few times already, I think, and it's got nothing to do with the style of hat, but the hat is far too big for your head, IMO. You could still wear a hat of that time-orientated style but a lot smaller, so it is balanced with your head size. Suits are killer. Don't like the last tie.
