“Get there before it becomes the toughest table in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

Fantastic place. I booked this place almost last minute for New years - what a wonderful meal! Some classic dished reinterpreted - a great pork rillette that was like a wonderful pate course. Great beet salad followed by the vegetarian polenta for me and the Pork shoulder for my friend. Every bite was wonderful and the wine and beer pairings made it really unique and fun. They use local ingredients (and wines and beers) where possible and this was the real eye-opener - the wines were terrific! It was quite economical considering the quality and care that went into the meal. Not a lot of choice, but great choices that would be hard not to love. Don't let the dodgy location throw you off - its GREAT.
