Stopped by for dinner for my third time and was just going to get the $30 tasting menu, but went full throttle for the regular tasting menu. Was not disappointed. The portion sizes are perfect and one course beautifully flows to the next. Roasted Japanese sweet potato soup, tuna tar tar, day boat scallop with grits, waygu beef medallions, squab confit with antelope sausage plus a multi course dessert. The wine pairing at $55 is a steal also.

eat the bar for a more casual experience.

If you go upstairs to the bar, they have a three course $30 prix fix menu. The menu is unusual and inventive. We had the green salad and lobster bisque for starters. I had the "faux" rib eye and my friend had the duck confit and for dessert we both had the sorbet. The bar staff make excellent wine recommendations. The chef, Tom Powers, is always in the kitchen.

It is really a fine dining place. Service great, food great, environment good enough. : ) We had the special first course mushroom roll, second beef striped loin as in the pic, and fresh fruit sorbets as dessert. The beef got my high recommendation!

Driving up to this new location for the restaurant you have to wonder what since a great place is doing in a construction zone across from the convention center. Once you enter the place it has a very pleasant atmosphere. The service was exceptional. We got the five course fixed price mean and everyone enjoyed everything. Was a bargain price for what you got I thought.

This is a classy place. It is very inconspicuous and you wouldn't ever know it was there unless you happened to stumble by this place, which you wouldn't. The menu is fresh, local American cuisine with an Asian bent. The staff are all impeccably dressed, and I like that. I started with the Shiso salad which was light, refreshing, and delicious! For entree, I chose the Broken Arrow Ranch Antelope with Chestnut Puree. Never had antelope before, but if it's like this every time, it would be my favorite food. It was cooked perfectly at medium rare, very delicate and perfectly flavorful combined with the jus it was served over and chestnut puree as accompaniment. I highly recommend this place.
