A stunning plate of carpaccio arrived within seconds of our seating.
The narrow dining room gets packed most nights for Chef Mike’s tasting dinners, which can include up to 25 courses.
Truffled grilled cheese.

Homemade pasta with wild boar.
We recently had a “small” dinner there: fourteen courses.
Wonderful lemon sole.
These are some of the best.
Perfect little sliders.
Rich, buttery lobster bisque, served in espresso cups.
Caviar with creme fraiche on homemade potato chips.
Tacos with lobster salad and pig’s ear tortillas.
Soft, velvety oxtail.
Assorted desserts include homemade chocolate ice cream bars, creme brulee, and frozen dark chocolate.
Needless to say, arrive hungry. The espresso’s pretty darn good, too.
