Corn Bisque, Prosciutto Berry Salad, and Roasted Duck Breast. Truly was a great meal and with so many quality bottles, it's easy to pair or match flights with your meal.

First time shared the soft shell crab blt and the tuna tartare for appetizers , had the tuna tartare entree and shared the sticky toffee roll for desert. Enormous entree portions that can easily be shared. A consistently very good meal.

It is a 5 -10 minute walk tops. They also do have valet parking, and yes, you should use it if driving.
