Chef Sonya Coté's BYOB restaurant is set beside a plowed field and under a canopy of ancient pecan trees on Springdale Farm. On Springdale Farmer's Stand Days (Wednesday and Saturday mornings) enjoy a breakfast/brunch after buying locally-made goods and fresh produce. On Friday and Saturday evenings, enjoy a prix fixe. Both of the meals are made with ingredients reflecting the current harvest.

So passionate about cocktail craft are the owners here, they boast a Clinebell CB300X2 commercial ice machine that spits out 300-pound blocks of clear, crystal ice–the type ice sculptors use. Each major spirit group gets two pages of the menu, broken down into six preparation methods, and all drinks are $10. Try the Pepino Fizz.
