I lovingly refer to The Towne Plaza as the "Pig Place" because of its array of pork preparations. Its menu, however, has choices that have pleased everyone we've asked to join us. All the menu items are beautifully prepared and presented. Do start with a...More

We were lucky to find this gem among the mediocre and hyped traverse city "foodie" recommendations. Everything about this restaurant stands out. Freshest produce, meats and fish, purity of the best ingredients, a slow foods concept and excellent service make this restaurant unique in this...More

We came to the restaurant for breakfast. We all had a combination of Cheddar omelet, bacon and potatoes; grilled romaine with poached egg and chicken benedict. The food and service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The roasted beet salad was stunning and the pork cheek was stellar. Some of our friends had special requests, which were gladly granted. The pork belly is always done perfectly. This is one of those rare places where you can't go wrong.

We have had many dinners here (and breakfast), enjoying them all. The specialty is pork, but most everything has been enjoyable. It's casual, fun and intimate. Summertime has the added treat of outdoor dining if weather permits. Good food, good service, great value.
