Originally, we found this place back in 2010 through a magazine article a friend spotted. Sounded like something we'd enjoy so me, my wife, my parents, my sister and a friend of the family made the 1.5 hr trip northeast past the giant cross. We weren't dissapointed.
The dining area is pretty wide open with views into the kitchen. Make sure to check out the landscaping/garden on your way out/in. Once seated, I love reading on the menu from where my meal is sourced; it gives backing to the "in-season & local" theme. The ingredients in the menu items, particularly the specials, seem genuinely crafted to play off of one another. In other words, they aren't just throwing risotto as a side with this lobster just because they are both "eligant" dishes. Braised pork shank with brussel sprouts and whipped potatoes... while it doesn't sound necessarily extravegant, it doesn't have to be when it's extremely well executed.
Kudos for a well constructed menu and well paired dishes. We seem to be making the trip twice a year now. Originally it was used for anniversaries, graduations, engagements, etc. However, now if there isn't something to celebrate, we make up an excuse (i.e. - we haven't been in a few months) to go!!!
