The food is wonderful!! It may get crowded at times so get there early. There is a brewery next door and you can take out from here and go next door if you want beer.

Wow. Not sure even where to begin. We had heard good things about this place (from a food writer, no less!) and wanted to give it a try. We tried a few weeks ago and were turned away, as we were told they were closing...More
