Foursquare Tips

  • *** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the lobster with shaved artichokes.) http://wapo.st/p4oJKa
  • Leave yourself at the mercy of the servers. Whatever they bring to the table will far exceed expectations. Fantastic meal and wonderful service in what feels like a good friends dining room
