Quirky not what you would expect in the foothills of the Catskills but you have to try it out! Gets busier now bc of popularity, but unique menu & well thought out recipes and ingredients.

They're very accommodating and whilst it may say one thing on the menu, the chefs were more than happy to modify the dish to my liking. I'm not a mushroom fan either!!
