Visited with friends. Menu split between apps, small plates, and large plates. Very attentive waiter. Drinks were good, salads, scallops, tuna, and short rib entrees were fabulous. Homemade cake and coffee topped off an unforgettable and relaxed meal.

We loved the atmosphere of this place - and anytime I can get a glass of Albariño at lunch, it's a great start. This is a tiny (was than 20 tables) place that allows reservations for lunch for two (recommend because they fill up fast)....More

The food at 247 Craven was a very pleasant surprise. It it was really top notch and better than we were expecting given the unprepossessing space. It's a small restaurant, in a simple space space and while comfortable, does not immediately suggest how good the...More

They don't post their menu because it's almost a farm to table restaurant. The menu changes so often based on what they can get fresh...when we were there I had the best caprese with pickled ginger and arugula. It was really... More
