"We look to the world's cuisines for our inspiration and to local farms, when possible, for the world's best ingredients." - Marlene Zakes
“I'm a little afraid to write this review because that may mean a long wait at one of my favorite places. I've been going here for lunch for probably ten years. I had a friend who used to call this "the secret place" because it only had a few tables at the time. We were sworn to secrecy not to tell anyone else, but I'm breaking the silence at long last. Just keep it between us, ok?” – Linda M.
