Not a review, since we couldn't eat here, just a notice that this place is closed due to construction/restoration work on Magazine Street as of July 2013.

This is a most unique restaurant serving fresh local produce. It's not very confidence inspiring when you enter but persist. The food is excellent, the host is helpful and generous with his time. This place really grows on you!
