Excellent selections and Boston quality in Concord. The bar menu is very good if you are looking for a quick bite to eat after work. The wait staff is professional and the kitchen produces high quality dishes. You will not be disappointed.

We have had some wonderful meals here in recent years, but now the food has slipped. Maybe the attention of the chef/owners has been diverted to their newer sister restaurant in Boston. The chicken, that used to be moist and terrific, now is dry and...More

I'm almost sure they do. They don't have a big menu but their food is very well prepared. Look at their menu online or call them.
