Good food, trendy, chef's table. That day there were two choices chicken or fish. We got the chicken with grits. It was enjoyable, but a little costly. You need reservations, at least we did for Sunday Brunch.

Everything about their food and service is great. It's no wonder that they have so many awards. The wine selection is superior as are the inventive dishes. Pricey but worth the money. We will plan to return in October.

This is one of my ten best meals EVER! We had the prix fixe with the wine pairings. Every course was a home run, and the amount of food was perfect. Not too little that you were still hungry, but not too much that you...More
