Impressive little place

You are welcomed at the entrance by a wall of wine broken down into 3 price points for easy decisions. The restaurant is small and intimate, very modern. Wine and liquor list is a 10, bourbon list was impressive. Food was also a 10, we started with bacon wrapped dates and risotto both excellent... read more

Stopped in for lunch before touring local attractions. Small but thoughtful menu with many alcoholic beverage options. We sampled the spinach salad, bacon wrapped figs and the cheeseboard. Everything was excellent. There were also 4 other creative salads, paninis, and flatbreads. For dessert we sampled the creme brûlée which was creamy and was served with the perfect crusted sugar top.... More

This restaurant is amazingly good. Chef Kyle is simply a genius! The menu is full of mind-bogglingly delicious tapas and larger dishes. He creates two soups every day, which display his talents in simple, fresh, full of flavor, perfectly seasoned awesomeness. Weekly specials are outstanding. He whips together a variety of flavors, from Mexican cuisine, classic French, Creole, Spanish and... More

Fresh garden vegetables prepared into delicious food. Brussel sprouts appetizer and spicy chicken and black bean soup were out of this world. A little too heavy-handed with the oil on the McKenna brat flat bread. Small, but comfortable atmosphere. Over server David was very efficient. There is construction going on out front. The whole parking lot is ripped-up, but the... More

We had a reservation for three and were squeezed onto a table for 2. They weren't busy and could have given us a bigger table. There were plenty of empty tables. Two of us had to sit together on a long bench against the wall. The bottom cushioning in the seat was obviously worn out and I sank far down... More

The thing that completely turnd me off was this was the very first time we had ever been there. Owner was behindf thwe bar most of the time we were there, doing wine tastings with wine... More

The servers know the food and wine list; the restaurant gives a percentage to a different non-profit agency monthly. The homemade soups are superior. They offer tapas, a good variety of salads & sandwiches, and unique entrées. The chicken, artichoke, spinach flatbread is incredible.

My sister and I decided to try this for lunch after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It did not disappoint! We had potato and leak soup (excellent) and split the Turkey chipotle and the Bacon/Brie/Apple Panini's. Both were delicious. They serve lunch till 4pm. Definitely will return!!

This is a smaller restaurant tucked into a busy area near State St. The menu has wonderful appetizers which aren't the everyday type. We love the bacon wrapped dates. The entrees are creative yet familiar. One of my favorites is the spinach steak salad. There is a good selection of craft beers and wines.
