Featured portion of the menu includes many items that completely change week to week in a very imaginative way. The rest of the menu includes items that don't change, but are of consistently high-quality. Closest US restaurant I've seen to a high-end English pub.

We went to the Union for lunch. This restaurant is always busy, a testament to the wonderful food and excellent service. The memu is varied but I understand from local people that the Mac and Cheese is one of their signature items.

We both had the Mac n cheese with ham as a dinner. We should have ordered the half portion, as we ended up taking half home. It was just as good re-heated. The beer selection is outstanding and there are many other menu items that...More
