MUSTARD & CRESS @ 153 BIERE STREET REVIEW

Me and few food bloggers were at Mustard & Cress which is located inside 153 Biere street  they have both indoor and alfresco dining with live grill they serve European, Mediterranean and fusion cuisine.
I just couldn't resist clicking the live pizza counter...the place was packed with tourists both young and old. people came in large groups to mix and mingle it was fun talking to few foreign nationals...
We were seated inside a private dining area which had dramatic lighting the ambiance was cooped up for my taste i would have preferred the alfresco dinning it was lively and fun.
The table setting was shabby chic tufted comfy chairs mustard plants and salsa inside the mortar and pestle were placed as center piece it was dramatic modern and fun elements to decorate as center piece...
