This romantic restaurant holds a nostalgic sort of charm, as though it’s been a fixture on the corner for a hundred years. It hasn’t, of course, but its pressed-tin ceilings, silver bowls filled with bright citrus, whitewashed exposed brick walls and tufted leather banquettes lend it an old-school sort of sophistication. Chef/co-owner Bryan Calvert and his co-owner wife, Deborah Williamson, live just above the restaurant, pulling most of the herbs used in the kitchen's dishes straight from their rooftop garden. Items wander from sautéed Carolina shrimp over creamy "polenta" to crispy honey-glazed pork belly-all of it divine. The restaurant holds a popular burger night every Monday, with an expanded burger menu and happy hour prices all night.
