Chef Sonya Coté has opened her restaurant right at the source – on a farm, set right beside a plowed field and under the canopies of ancient pecan trees on Springdale Farm. Dinner is served on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Each meal consists of between five and eight courses, tailored to the season. The price varies between $55 and $65, with the exception of Thursday night, when recipes are still being tweaked, which runs $40.

Eastside Cafe

This well-established place has been serving some of the healthiest food on the Eastside for quite a long time. The large herb and vegetable garden in back makes for fantastic fresh plates, and a dedicated gluten-free menu makes it fun for everyone.

Justine's Brasserie

Serves French bistro fare accompanied by killer cocktails in a 1930s cottage. You can play a little pétanque outside while you wait for the steak frites.

Qui

The curry style pasta, Salt & Time bavette steak, and the Rabbit 7 Ways are a few of the reasons this new eatery has a buzz around it.
