  1. I would go with the sweet corn soup, lamb and creme brulee then a short nap.

    1. We're going next Friday so would love a report w/what you ended up with.

      Went there for the Winter Restaurant Week and was very impressed, food was excellent as were the choices. Considering their mains are in the $35-$40 range, it was a great value!

        If you haven't gone yet, owlwoman, don't go! See here for my review:

        By the way, Littleman, I would've gone with the lamb, but was told by the server that it was an extremely small portion. Thankfully I didn't because my friend did, and it was certainly tiny.
