In the Butchers Hill area, this restaurant makes all feel welcome in a neighborhood tavern atmosphere. The chef/owner displays his skills preparing creative dishes, such as crispy-skin duck breast, coriander and pepper-crusted tuna, slow-roasted Cuban pork shank and spring vegetable pasta. Some choose to make a meal from the wide selection of small plates. The duck fat French fries are a local favorite. Dinner service begins at 5 p.m. The staff is friendly and helpful with food, wine and beer choices. The lounge has a hip style and is a popular spot to relax and chat.
