The Sojourner is now permanently closed. Oh well. Apparently it's important to offer food that tastes good if one wishes to prosper in the restaurant biz.

I sat at the bar to eat and the waitress was great. A little bit of conversation which is perfect. Ravioli was excellent. Had a sample of the Cherry Lemonade slush drink and I would go back for that. Overall great dinner.
