AAA Inspector Notes
On the National Register of Historic Places, this house was built in 1907 and was President Warren Harding's respite from the harsh northern winters. Garnering its name from the downstairs dining area, patrons can dine in the cellar where the aura is intimate and cozy with low ceilings, dim lighting, brick walls and an array of stacked wooden wine racks. The upstairs offers a quaint and charming dining experience. Classical music plays softly in the background adding to the romantic ambiance. The owner/chef and his wife 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 chef prepares upscale cuisine from fresh ingredients, including making his own pasta. The menu features many imported Italian meats and cheeses as well as specialty items such as veal, lamb, wild salmon and rabbit. The service begins with the reservation and doesn't end until you say so. The owners may even stop by your table to converse and ask about your meal.
