I eat here because they have some menu items that are not served in most restaurants. The food is good, sometimes better and sometimes bad. They do have good vegetables and bread.

I should add that they do offer a fix price dinner option on the menu.
Is the Prix Fixe menu new? We were there in November, 2015 and I don't remember only seeing a fixed menu
