Description

George Bumbaris and Sarah Stegner deliver stylish comfort food at this treasure, supplied by local sustainable farms, which is as perennially packed as it is dependable. Baked feta cheese and homemade pâté with Cognac-marinated prunes are flavor-packed appetizers, and homemade Italian sausage with basil rémoulade, balsamic reduction, and a stack of grilled vegetables is what this place is all about. Whatever you do, save room for a piece of Mom’s seasonal pie, recently blueberry in a heavenly crust.
