The Dogwood in Hampden is now closed for good (I guess). Too bad, although I wanted to like this place much more than I actually did. I liked their philosophy of emphasising local and organic product and the staff was very nice, but I never seemed to order anything that made me think I had to come back and get this again.
Dogwood made quite a splash when it first opened but the few times I went there I never took to the cavern-like dining area. Dark and gloomy.
The sandwiches were tasty but a bit expensive. Then again I'm partial to Atwaters and they aren't cheap either but the bustling atmosphere is part of the charm and half the point of dining out is the charm.
