Maybe not a relevant review...I went within a year of opening. Limited menu & pricey...not a bad thing, but small portions. Drink orders move like a herd of turtles. Service was questionable...Server would walk past table after initial drink order without further inquiry, refill on water or refresh bread basket. It's a small place so when a server ignores you it makes for an uncomfortable situation. Neither myself nor my wife have been compelled to return...and we live 2 blocks away.

Ron is on to something. I had no idea crossing a double yellow line is apparently legal here. Left hand turn lane... In Chucktown it's a merge lane and/or commercial parking. Senator tags...police can't pull them over? WTF? Traffic enforcement is definitely a weak point for the police. On a local level, Chief Mullens has done a great job and the Dept. Is definitely understaffed.
When you don't have a valid point...cry "racism" or change the subject. Kid made a mistake... Police did their job. I remember when the 'entrepreneur' program was enacted. Where do they teach these vendors to get their palmetto hearts? They don't. Are they buying them at the Palmetto Supply Store...NO! Most venders steal them. That's a big problem for this program and a bigger problem for the city and it's residents...
Most of these 'vendors' get the palmettos by cutting out the tops of other people's trees on their way downtown...aka STEALING and DAMAGE TO PRIVATE PROPERTY. I have caught a few, and not just kids. I think the officer did his job and did it well, most wouldn't bother. Had the kid acted with respect it could have had a better outcome for him. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way.
The stated problems seem to be a common failure of many newer establishments. The good typically survive and get better...the rest will go out of business. My question...How are $5 single tacos and $7 Margaritas considered 'inexpensive'?
Daniel Atwill is a home owner / resident on the opposite side of the street, and hence, a different 'block'. We do share St Philip as a common boundary. I am on the block to the west, he on the east.
So, correct & accurate. I did not say on the 'street' as is being implied. I am the last on my block. Daniel's block has only 4 (I think).
Daniel is one of the very few with a family who have chosen to stay and make a stand for the livability & residential character of the East end of Elliotborough.
2 full city blocks and not even 1/2 dozen owner occupied homes....!
