Very small, very out of the way, and VERY GOOD! The chef uses locally grown and sourced foods and the flavor of everything we've tried has been outstanding!

This is very cozy but lovely bistro. They serves not only traditional Southern foods, such as Deep Fried Chicken, but also very fine dining too. Staff are very kind and responsive. Foods were good and also right size, not too bulky. Wish to visit again next time
