You have to make a reservation. Limited seating available. Very good food. Vegan options are available. A bit pricey for some but within higher budgets.

Freshly prepared, very good food served by a competent staff in a pleasantly restored 19th downtown building. How good and fresh? They are willing to say "we don't have anymore of that today!" But the alternatives are varied and wonderful.

Began with a wonderful smoked salmon dip, paired with warm, soft house made chips. The entree consisted of scallops atop an asparagus spinach risotto. I believe there were also red peppers included. One of the really interesting flavors was the leaks placed below the scallops....More

Bill is a fabulous chef and the menu changes daily. I'd suggest you call (a few days ahead) and ask if there will be vegetarian options and to make your reservation. Enjoy!
