This location offers some creative food choices and excellent beer and wine selections. Service is friendly and attentive. Servers work in a team concept. I had the bison bourganise. It was a tender and delicious take on the beef classic.

This is hooked on the Radisson Downtown. Easy access. Nice selection of beverages and food. They also serve late. The service was very good and pricing reasonable. This place compliments the Radisson.

Not only is the food innovative and delicious, but a daily newspaper is available to read (local and national). I think this is my go to destination but avoid normal dining hours so I can sit and enjoy my food and the newspaper!

There was an area at the back of the restaurant that I think could seat 30 and be kind of secluded... it also kind of spills into the lobby of the hotel so might be a fun atmosphere !
