Inspired by the journey of the Jewish people from their ancestral homeland to the Diaspora, Abe Fisher pays homage to centuries of tradition, while embracing the idea that cultural exchange places cuisine in a continuous state of evolution.

The nightly menu that pulls together centuries-old flavors from Montreal to Budapest to Brooklyn that both modernizes and elevates the long-familiar classics of Jewish soul food. Nowhere is this effort more rewarded than in the now signature dish – the Montreal Short Ribs – which Food Republic referred to as "smoked meat nirvana".
