On the National Register of Historic Places, the house was built in 1907 and was President Warren Harding's respite from the harsh northern winters. The restaurant is named after the dining area in the cellar where patrons enjoy an intimate dining experience. The chef prepares savory cuisine from fresh ingredients and house-made items such as his very own pasta. Imported Italian meats and cheeses, and specialty items such as lamb, wild salmon and rabbit are served. Upstairs seating is an option. The owners form an impressive team where one masters his craft in the kitchen and the other guides guests through the food and wine menus on the way to an unforgettable evening. The owners may even stop by your table to converse and ask about your meal.
