Located in Railroad Square in “old-town” Santa Rosa this is a west coast version of an old New York lower east side era brick townhouse. Right on the sidewalk, the indoor tables provide street-seating atmosphere making the inside room light and bright. The weather cooperated with a warm 76-degrees, so it was delightful to be outside-inside. We sat at the 12 seat bar on very comfortable stools although there were also some tables in the rear of the bar area. The large dining area inside was open and airy. The interior is red brick walls and tin-inlay type ceiling, wood flooring and heavy mahogany accents, including the marble bar and mirrored back bar, and high ceilings with ceiling fans. We were told it began as the old Grand Hotel building, which after the San Francisco earthquake, became a rooming house, was not cared for and fell in disrepair; recently rehabbed during the downtown revival. ...The drinks were good, the bartender friendly, and a nice menu. We had the scallops wrapped in bacon prepared excellently with an apple reduction sauce over risotto cooked perfectly; also the golden beats with goat cheese was delicious, as was my burger made with fresh meat cooked perfectly, juicy with tangy taste. Good food, courteous attentive staff…but a bit pricey. However it rates high for me,
