Gourdough's Public House

We'll have the Count Gourdough Cristo, if you'll have the Dirty Plucker (fried chicken atop a doughnut, slathered in maple icing and honey). For dessert, let's get the Sin-a-Bomb or Salty Balls.

Henri's Wine & Cheese

By day, Henri's has some serious food mojo bubbling forth. Culinary Institute graduate Andy Means has flair, which is obvious from the spot-on wine and cheese/charcuterie pairings, and from the originals emerging from the kitchen by day.
