Elegant flavours with local fresh ingredients, this place is sophisticated, quiet, and classically delicious. Highlights include the fried oyster mushrooms, the Etch salad with shrimp, and the Indian chicken. Go at lunchtime for an affordable selection of the chef's best dishes.

There is a small bar area at the front of the restaurant. The only University Club I know of is at Vanderbilt University near the football stadium.
