  • Chef David Gunawan, his partner Dara Young and team are crafting daily-changing menus adhering to a local farmer-led philosophy. Go and see what critics and diners are raving about. [Eater 38 Member]
  • If you're lucky enough to come when they have bone marrow, get the bone marrow! I'm not a bone marrow kind of gal but this was by far the best course.
  • David Gunawan's first venture as an owner. Beautiful food, sourced with extreme care. Service staff are some of the best in town. A space to watch.
  • Offers a 6 or 4 course tasting menu--one that includes meat & one that does not. While sample menus are available online, the actual day-of menu varies based on season and availability.
  • This was the best meal Ive ever eaten. Highly recommend the wine pairings if you get the tasting menu.
  • Exquisite ingredients, prepared with a light touch. The art it seems is standing back.
  • Absolutely should go with the wine pairings. The food is amazing but the wine together puts it over the top.
  • Menu is different everyday.
  • Good food but gnocchi lacked in flavour. Fun quaint environment. Beet dish was delicious. Service was not very attentive - lack of foresight. Price point is too high for portion sizes.
  • Had their tasty tasting menu! Food is delicious and original and service is very good.
  • Great spot, really nice but small portions... Wifi password is "apprentice"
  • Table for three in the back is cute as can be!
  • Must try: sweetbread with buttermilk carrot sauce their menu changes often
  • Love the changing menu of food, friendly staff and cozy atmosphere. Not ideal for groups.
  • Cozy space with a simple but thoughtful menu. Food is excellent and staff is great. Worth checking out.
  • David Gunawan, former chef at Wildebeest; leading this new establishment. Daily fresh sheet focuses on local ingredients.
  • Great local stop out side of the city!
