This place has enjoyed neighborhood success and beyond for 16 years now. New chef Jason Tallent has revitalized the dinner menu, but continues the tradition of exquisite food presented simply. Among the standards are some delicious jewels, such as Strube Ranch Wagyu flat iron steak, and baby greens with shaved persimmon.
With new ownership and a new, modern American menu, this place marches on with new items such as beer-battered soft shell crawfish, balsamic-glazed goat ribs, and grilled shrimp.

The crowd is attracted by the simple menu based on locally sourced, naturally raised, and often organic ingredients, paired with down-home friendliness.
