“Odd Duck, Goodkind and now DanDan are definitely my three go-tos when I go out,” says Gregory León, chef and co-owner of Amilinda. “Odd Duck is the place we usually go to for date night and I always walk in ready to be adventurous with such a diverse menu. Goodkind is always fantastic and open late which is a plus for us, working in the industry. Always end your meal with the Basque Cake there. DanDan has now cured my longing for Chinese food like I was able to eat back in San Francisco: egg rolls, sour sausage and smashed cucumbers. The service at all three restaurants is always attentive without being overbearing—and always super friendly.”
