My family loves going here. The food is consistently good, and there are plenty of menu items that don't change, regardless of the season. The best thing about it, though, is the bread! I don't know how they make it, but it's so good, they...More

I have posted my question about having a birthday dinner for 6 people. Can we get a cake from you or can we bring one to the restaurant for dessert at our table?

Don't know about that one. Remember that restaurants have to follow the regulations from the board of health - so it's best to give them a call first.
Hello, I would like to have my grandson's birthday dinner at the Methuen restaurant. We would be a party of 2 adults and probably 4 boys 13. Is this allowed? If so, can we get a cake for dessert or can we bring a cake for everyone's dessert at our table? This would be for 4/9/16 at about 5 p.m.

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.
