|Dear Irving: Samoa & True Patriot|
Luckily I knew the address, because while the door is not hidden, there is absolutely nothing indicating what the door at the top of the stairs leads to. To a passerby it looks like the entryway to a swank apartment building while those in the know confidently walk up to the entrance of Dear Irving. Since it's so new we were able to get a seat at the bar in 10 minutes without a reservation on a Friday night, but I don't think that is going to last long. We were seated on the 1923 side right next to the split to the 1960s. The decor and detail were exquisite and I felt completely transported.
