There’s usually a pretty long wait for a table, but it’s well worth it. Order the vegetable plate if you are vegetarian or just looking to go meatless for the night. It’s delicious!

Always a wonderful lunch. Very simple French country cuisine with Frank Stittsspin spin on flavor. Recommend the small plates over all others. Make sure you ask for a recommendation of wine with your meal.
