This charming American bistro flies a bit under the radar, but has all the things you'd want in a neighborhood restaurant. It's exceptionally quaint and cozy; the guests are friendly and often local; and the vibe is perfectly laid-back. And while the space is decidedly unflashy, the refined dishes showcase a delicious interplay between quality ingredients and the notable talents of the kitchen. Kick things off with a mouthwatering bowl of chilled corn soup, served sweet and creamy and garnished with roasted poblano peppers, Gouda, pico de gallo, and fresh cilantro. Then move on to a lovely fillet of bluefish, roasted to crispy-outside-and-tender-inside perfection, and served over nutty wild rice with snap pea slivers and a mild green curry emulsion.
