Best meal in a long time.
Besides a large loud party that came in, it was wonderful.

We came the first time 5 years ago when living here briefly and have come every time we are in town.

The oyster gumbo was so wonderfully flavorful, followed by possibly the finest grilled salmon ever. On the plate was also pickled beet cubes that proved that you don’t have to over pickle a vegetable to lift it up , also French Green Lentils,
Pistachios, Goat Cheese, Pesto, Basil Butter. Heaven!
My husband had the mozzarella to start and the sublime guinea fowl with Parmesan Gnocchi, Garlic
Rapini, Charred Tomato.
The wine list remains strong and priced fairly. The only problem is how often we get up here from NC. This is my favorite place !

The Chef and everyone on the line are gifted and the entire front of house is too. Keith was our waiter the other night, keeping us relaxed and pacing us and the kitchen for a perfect evening!

The food and service was outstanding. The specialty cocktails were superb. I had the blood orange martini which was delicious as well as the apple pie old fashioned that my husband enjoyed. We shared two appetizers, the fresh mozzarella with va ham and the ginger bbq pork ribs. Both were delicious, especially the ribs. I had the pan seared sea scallops and my husband had the salmon. Both were delicious! The scallops were cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is very pricey, however a wonderful treat for a special occasion!
