it's a tiny space, dimly lit and cozy. the food is exquisite, with a rotating menu and the option of small or large plates so you can taste multiple items. the wine list is extensive, also offering the choice of different amounts (glass, 1/3 bottle, 1/2 bottle, whole bottle) to maximize tasting options.
the first time jill and i visited, we ordered a spanish red wine, buttery mushrooms, braised kale, and a cheese plate. the next time, a french red wine, farro with parsley and lemon, salt cod and parsnip fritters with chanterelles, baby clams in a white wine broth, and radishes with salted french butter. i'm officially hooked.
