Bill, the host, is a master storyteller. His enthusiasm is contagious. The flute player was magical. The pianists,...More

We like the Mills house . It may be a bit pricey, but the atmosphere is nice and we usually get a salad and burger. Check out Gaulart &Maliclet a little french place a few blocks. There are so many restaurants you can't go wrong.
Have a great time!
