Allium has a simple, but delicious menu. One solid option- their hamburger. Another route- pick a few smaller portions and share. Kale salad really fresh! Easy, laid back atmosphere. More parking spaces around back.

Hen of the woods mushroom followed by kale salad and light battered fried chicken. Most amazing biscuit as was crunchy on outside and moist inside with wonderful flavors. Great wines as well. Fresh food and wonderful combinations.
