About
What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

Here in the Merrimack Valley, we have so many family owned and operated restaurants that it is crazy to go to a chain.....but as far as chain restaurants go, this is one of the better ones.

Don't know about that one. Remember that restaurants have to follow the regulations from the board of health - so it's best to give them a call first.
