This place lived up to expectations. The food was tasty and fresh. All well presented. Shrimp and grits probably the best version I’ve had.

Grabbed a really top-quality dinner after a concert at the Franklin Theatre, right across the street. Beautiful presentation, quirky decorations, attentive service.

Wonderful use of an old building 1st and 2nd floor to create a special place for dining. Shrimp and Grits excellent. Pot stickers tasty. Caesar Salad small, and risotto creamy rather than cheesy. Staff wonderful. Loved the option to buy a round for the kitchen.
