If I'd been in town for business, this would have been an excellent choice, but we were in town as tourists. The wine list was great, and the caprese salad with burrata was really delicious. I enjoyed the Leeky Boat but would definitely return to try some of the other entree items. We had the chocolate pot de creme for dessert but found other items very tempting as well.
