An amazing place. In a converted church just beautiful. We had the Maple Glazed Rack of Elk, it was terrific. Impressive list of cheeses and charcuterie as well. Highly recommended.

We're going to a theatre show on a Saturday night and I would like to bring my special lady here. Should I make reservations, and if so, how far ahead of time?

I recommend reservations for sure, especially on the weekend. If you can't get them, it's worth a visit to see the place and have drinks and apps at the bar. Beautiful!
Do you welcome gun owners? I am planning a trip to your restaurant soon.
