Dean's prepares quality ingredients in innovative, interesting, flavorful, and healthy ways. Dean's pot roast is succulent and delicious and second only to my own Italian pot roast that stews the meat in a bottle of red wine. Dean's, alas and alack, does not serve alcoholic...More

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
