This is a small gem of a restaurant. I’ve gone a few times for lunch. I believe they serve lunch during the week 11:00-2:30. They offer prix fix and choices are always fresh and delicious. This restaurant is small, only a few tables. During the...More

Basic decor and facilities. Lacking ambience. Food is the best in the area and the service is attentive and friendly. There's a reason that this place has been a local favorite for so long.

The menu is frequently changing to reflect and enjoy seasonal produce, products, and tastes. There will always be one ingredient on the menu that I must ask staff to define for me. The long and short of it is, no matter what you order, it...More

As others have said, this is an incredibly small restaurant - only 7 tables setup when we visited this weekend. At least half the space is the open kitchen - so the smells, activity and even oil in the air are all part of the...More
