- The walls are exposed brick, the chairs are plastic, the kitchen is open and the cartoon-inspired artwork is colorful and engaging. The place has a crisp, urban European feel. – Teresa Politano, The Star-Ledger
- The other night - Plan B was our 'plan A'…The food was top notch, the atmosphere oh so cool, and the service was right there all of the time. – John L., Yelp
