Dinner with a dear friend at one of the best local restaurants. Fantastic service, food beyond expectation along with an excellent glass of wine in a comfortable setting. Dessert alone is worth a visit.

I had dinner at Lilac. The service was excellent - honest, low key, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was somewhat inconsistent. The polenta in my dish, for example, had truly great flavor and I scraped every last bit of it off my plate. But it...More
