We saw this restaurant in our guidebook and it had an excellent review. I can see why. Our lunch was delicious and creative. The ambiance of the restaurant has a contemporary yet casual atmosphere. We will definitely return if we are in the area.

Sorry, I don't. She changes offerings on a regular basis.....always delicious and intriguing. But if you call, they will tell you if there will be special menus for that night. Reservations are a must.
