    The "three little pigs" may be conservatively seasoned, but it's a perfectly cooked pork platter. Desserts are crazy creative but delicious (donuts and foie gras ice cream? yes, please!). Read more

    My favorites were the short rib, three little pigs and the sticky toffee pudding. Really. The sticky toffee pudding is non-negotiable.

    When available, do the market menu. It changes daily and the dishes consist of what is in season and freshest at that time. The price is right too.

    Duck and donut is a do-not-miss kind of dessert. Order it, enjoy it and dream about having it again.

    The farm-to-table concept has stayed true to its roots, offering a different menu each evening, based on seasonality and that day’s delivery.

    Focusing on New American and Southern food, father and son chefs get it right with perfectly-prepared meats, seasonal veggies and scrumptious desserts.

    Try the sunchoke and scallop soup. Perfectly seasoned. The pearl scallops had so much flavor. Citrusy-sweet.
