The menu is handwritten and changes daily. The restaurant has been open for 22 years and has a lot of character. The service was excellent. It is a Fixed-price 5-course dinner for $75. They start by bringing a series of small plates (antipasti misti) to the table including a creamy and delicious burrata mozzarella, fried Maine oysters, artichokes, roasted peppers, cured pork belly and sardines. For the Primi course we enjoyed the gnocchi with lamb ragu and the arugula ravioli with walnut butter. At this point we were stuffed and we only had 3 more courses to go. For the Secondi, Corey decided to be adventurous and go with the squab (pigeon). I stuck with the juicy pork chop. A cheese course follows and the meal concludes with dessert (Chocolate Hazelnut cake and Caramelized Tangerines) and a plate of sweets. We had a great experience at this restaurant. If you are up for spending this much money on dinner, I would also recommend City Zen.
