Certainly not cheap, but we enjoyed my birthday dinner here. I quite enjoy tasting menus - I love getting interesting dishes filled with things I might not otherwise try. They will accommodate any allergies or other preferences if you tell them in advance.

Had my favorite all time meal at Ruby Watchco a few years ago. We returned a few nights ago, and it was maybe even better than the last time. All food is perfectly executed - from the flavors on the super fresh salad, homemade biscuits...More
