Back for my high school reunion and enjoyed dinner before with a longtime friend. We both had a lovely fish entree! I highly recommend it.

When we get a night out without kids, we head for Bad Art. The steaks are local and delicious. We've noticed an upswing in details and quality recently and were told they have a new sous-chef. Visited again last week on a Thursday and everything...More
