You must try this restaurant. I tried the three course meal and it was AMAZING. We ate slow, smelled the food, talked about the food, it was fantastic.

Do the 5 course dinner with wine pairing. Trust them. Fantastic every step of the way. And set in a beautiful renovated 100 year old theater, gorgeous. If you are a foodie, appreciate art, culinary or otherwise go here. Just do it.

Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Burgers and gnocchi were the favorites, and well portioned. A little pricey for me as a regular family lunch, but a great place for a special occasion!
