The menu at this classy, quiet spot is geared towards groups: Communal dishes like charcuterie boards, steak tartare and a shareable short-rib chili get their own portion of the menu. But we like chef Ken Carter’s food when we get to keep it to ourselves. His chicken dish is half roasted, half fried and all perfect; his toothsome housemade tagliatelle is tossed in a perky mushroom sauce. And while desserts like sticky buns and apple fritters are meant to be shared, you’ll want to keep these for yourself, too.
