Here, the menu is always changing with several choices each day. Sometimes you are in the mood for fine cuisine and other times it’s comfort food. In the summer, the chef prepares dishes that are light and local. In the winter, the fare can be heartier, heart-warming. It’s your choice! Our focus, however, stays the same: to be your favorite, neighborhood joint. A place where you love being a regular—and each meal ends with excitement about what tomorrow will bring.
