Elske was a treat since sometimes you just want quality over quantity, and Elske definitely delivered. I had their set menu, which has 5 courses of a variety of foods, all which were delicious. If you like something refined, and can also enjoy the simpler side of food (simpler in the sense that the food isn't over-seasoned with a ton of salt, seasoning), please come here.
