42 was much better than advertised or I expected - the display shows sweet cakes and burgers but they have a kale/brussel sprouts salat with seared tuna, sweet potato fries - very fresh things that you wouldn't expect in the south but prices are pretty...More

We made a reservation for noon and glad we did. It was surprisingly busy for a weekday. Perhaps the excellent food, wine and service explain why. Lots of options (including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, light fare), all very reasonably priced considering the beautiful dining room. Wine...More

We looked in and saw the linen tablecloths and napkins and the classy decor and thought this place would be expensive, but for lunch at least, it really wasn’t. The service was good and the food delicious. I had the turkey reuben wrap and my...More
