    Where else can you get pate, tomato soup, and a cornmeal rustic cake that likely gives all other pancakes a complex?

    The pickles are a classic so is the baguette with olives, olive oil and butter. The bread pudding is a must have

    Happy hour just okay. All the appetizers were served with pickled vegetables, and the sardine tartine was the saltiest thing I've ever put in my mouth. Went for dinner, didn't stay.

    Everything was exquisite, but the bread pudding was to-die-for. Try to catch happy hour tues-thurs 4-7 for great wine & app prices.
