I dropped by for lunch with a friend and all it took was one bite...

Yes, real women swoon.

Where to begin. I ordered the Slow-Braised Short Rib Gougeres. The perfectly-piped choux pastry puffs were a treat all by themselves. But, with the shredded beef topped with a smidgen of apricot gremolata...it was remarkable. I'm not kidding.

My friend had the Baby Greens Salad studded with crisp apple, candied hazlenuts, farm-fresh chevre, and tossed with a simple, but memorable sherry vinaigrette.

And the Southern Fried Chicken is pure sophisticated comfort food.

No wonder Executive Chef Mark Connell  is smiling. He knows he's got a winner!  And rumor has it that he's going to be putting a Coq au Vin Pot Pie on the dinner menu. I'm there...
