A hidden gem, a place well worth the travel to find. Sevice was great and the quality of the food is outstanding, food quality exceeds price point. It would not matter the setting, New York, Chicago or Paris Bills would be a favorite.

Started with tilefish served over a tomato gazpacho with cilantro, jalapeno and greens. It seemed odd to have a warm fish on a cold soup. But, it worked. Next were lamb chops, with a mustard sauce and balsamic glaze. On the side was a serving...More

Bill is a fabulous chef and the menu changes daily. I'd suggest you call (a few days ahead) and ask if there will be vegetarian options and to make your reservation. Enjoy!
