Was just visiting the area and our clients took us to lunch here. Each dish was an excellent Interpretation with fresh ingredients and a kick when needed. Especially recommend the south of the border options. Even the bread was outstanding. Worth a trip.

Great food and atmosphere. Lots of farm to table and healthy on trend items. The poached pear salad is worth the trip alone. I love the hand cut French fries, best fries in town for sure. Yikes I'm getting hungry just typing this.
