    They always have an off-menu vegetarian entree made from seasonal items the chef has in the kitchen.

    Go for the super-value tasting menu ($65), or choose from dishes like duck breast salad with figs, or the excellent off-menu burger; don’t miss the pairings from a seriously well-stocked cellar. Read more

    The burger is one of the best I've had. Really pleasant meat, cheese ground in, jam served on an english muffin.

    Good food generally but avoid the burger. SO SALTY (and I love salty). Medium rare is more pink than expected. And NO KETCHUP - ahhhhh.

    It took the chef/owner/sommelier ten years to amass the 1000+ bottles of new and old wine in this spot's cellar. Grab an aged bottle for anywhere from 35 to 900 bucks. Read more
