Hard to find a place that combines both. It is very clear that exceptions are made to every rule here! "No substitutions" isn't in their vocabulary. The food is fresh, the wait staff pleasant and accomodating, the menu fresh and innovative. Wish it were closer!

Perhaps we just caught an off-night, but we found our meals disappointing. For example, my wife ordered the Layered Chicken, an inventive approach to a traditional dish, but the shitake mushrooms were tough as shoe leather. I had the Pulled Pork & Penne Pasta special,...More

This was a great restaurant that made my dish exactly as I wanted and liked it. My husband's Francoise was also very good. The service was great. It was charming and had outdoor seating that was really nice. I would definitely recommend.
