We eat here regularly and are always delighted with the new ways Chef Gabriel chooses to showcase local products. Love the Wood Fired Wednesday’s with special pricing. Dinners can be expensive but there are always some less expensive options on the menu.

Very good, tasty and nutritious food. The entrees are organic and products are purchased from local farmers. There is limited seating available and you must have a reservation. They are not opened too often and never on Sundays and Mondays. Seasonal hours are also in...More
