Went on a whim. Food was pretty damn good! Menu, like the interior, is minimal. Not a very big space, but it suits the aesthetic. About 9 items. For two of us we had majority of them. The menu changes daily, all the food is local. Pork shoulder was juicy and flavorful. The appetizer of roasted squash in anchovies and lemon was amazing. Focaccia was heaven. There is barely a kitchen, and just one chef slaving over his creations. left reasonably satiated. If you're into wine, they have a store in back of the restaurant. Be prepared to open the wallet wide for good food, delicious food in fact.

Lovely small place to enjoy well made wine. The server was able to make great recommendations. Proprietors Peter and Orenda were so friendly and welcoming

What just happened?!?!?! This place is ridiculous. Great wine, great food, excellent staff. We literally tried everything on the menu and the chef brought us some extra dishes to try because he saw we were enjoying his food so much. Owners were exceptional. Man... So awesome.
