I didn't realize that the restaurant was open here again. Now it's less formal. You go to the counter and order, then pick up your napkins and utensils. They give you the drink when you order and a number to put on the table. The...More

Amazing food in an old restored mansion. Food was eclectic and greeted for university student and professional clientele. Very tasty and price great. You order at a counter and there is no wait staff which is even better f or quick service.
