Taste the passion and pride with which Chef/owner Christopher Barnum-Dann scrupulously sources everything on his carte. A charming host who loves to chat with customers, he is happy to explain his “conscious eater” ethos to anyone at the counter. That dedication extends to his diners as well, as this kitchen bends over backwards to adapt the hyper-seasonal five-course tasting menus for those with dietary restrictions (though 24-hours’ notice is appreciated).
The setting is a covered patio with hanging lights, spacious windows and an assuredly casual crowd. Beautifully crafted dishes include polenta cakes with bacon, sous-vide eggs, a peach purée and sweet corn. Also try “market” offerings like crisp-skinned salmon with pops of colorful vegetables.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
