This appetizer is basically fried Swiss instead of fried mozzarella with a creamy dipping sauce and stone ground mustard. Just a wonderful bite to start your evening off right. All the dishes in our party were seasoned well and had great foodie flavors. The menu...More

Upbeat dining downtown. Clean and modern with a mature (attitude not age) client base. Note - don't eat in the back. The noisy dishwasher and its chlorine dominate the back. Eat outside, inside front or at the pleasant bar.
