    Spent New Years Eve at FnB with our entire family. Couldn't have asked for a better night out. The food was simply the best in this town. We ordered everything on the menu and were happy we did.

    If you want a real inside look, ask for the Frank Sinatra table for 2. It's literally inside the kitchen so you can see them prepare the food. But be prepared: it gets a little warm in there!

    Sit at the counter and watch Charlene cook. Also ask Pavle about his special Chartreuse. Maybe you can have some.
