We know you’re on the edge of your seats, so we’ll just tell you now: 12 Chairs does, in fact, have more than twelve chairs. In fact, it’s a good-sized space that’s never too cramped or busy. And between its breakfast all day, traditional Middle Eastern dishes, sandwiches, salads, and some pierorgies and schnitzels for good measure, 12 Chairs’ menu has something for everyone. Even your complain-iest friends will have a hard time complaining about the fact that there isn’t a single item over $20.

Jack's Wife Freda
A good spot for your weekend brunch rotation, but don't rely on it for dinner. Jack's Wife Freda does not get better when the sun goes down.
Little Prince needs a lot of fine tuning. We really wanted to love this place. But don’t hire a bunch of waiters just because they look cool, and don’t fail on technique when you’re serving French food.
