The Town House is in my hometown (tiny), though I haven't lived there in years. We've been twice when I go home to visit my folks. It's lovely, but not for people who don't have a sense of adventure about their food or don't necessarily appreciate the artistic aspect. Unique presentations and combinations of flavors and textures. Go for at least the 5-course tasting (we did 10 last time!) -- portions are sized accordingly. One of the best things they do there are the wine pairings -- the sommelier is excellent. Local wines, Old World, New World, fortified, hard cider, several bubblies -- it's always a pleasant surprise.
