Acclaimed chef Teri Rippeto strips down her food to the most basic of pleasing elements. The fresh, high-quality ingredients are locally produced and perfectly prepared. A frequent fixture at all the local farmers' markets, Rippeto changes the menu monthly in order to use food that reflects the season. The décor features exposed brick and bistro-like features, giving a rustic, earthy atmosphere that complements the cuisine. I like sitting by the window and watching the street life.
