***** (5 stars)
This small restaurant manages to squeeze in seating for about 30 people, including 10 at the bar.
The menu features just four appetizers and four main courses. Each is prepared completely from scratch, so it’s not a place to go if you’re in a hurry. In fact, during our visit the kitchen was even having trouble getting all the plates for a single table out at once.
The wait was worth it, though, as the food was delicious. In particular, the combination of flavors on my beet salad was amazing, with beet, fennel, and candied nuts in each bite, and accompanied by a cheese stuffed tempura squash blossom.
Food pricing is quite high, with a steak coming in at $60, but it is somewhat offset by very reasonable wine pricing, an unusual combination.
Service was attentive and friendly, and the volume wasn’t nearly as loud as I was expecting, given the close quarters.
It’s most definitely the best food for many miles in all directions.
