    Destination food for me. The squash blossom appetizer is a must-share. Lovely outdoor seating on the lane or under the tree. Specialty cocktails are quite refreshing for summer. Jessica is amazing!

    Always try and make a reservation! Especially on weekends. If not, the chefs counter is really cool! The black cod is amazing.

    Save room for dessert. It's a separate menu. Don't be outside too close to closing or you'll likely get ignored by the staff during closing procedures.

    Sit at the bar, share the small plates and enjoy lively conversation with knowledgeable bartenders about wine. They will even do blind tastings which can be a fun one off experience
