We started with a roasted squash soup. I'm not a fan of soups that don't have chunks in them but shockingly Larry loved it! I was seriously flabbergasted - Larry never likes vegetables!
This might seem silly - but I think the mid-meal sorbet MIGHT have been my favorite part. It was an Apple Cider sorbet. I don't even LIKE apple cider OR sorbet but this was AMAZING!!!!! I seriously wanted to sneak into the kitchen and steal the rest! So if you ever see Apple Cider Sorbet - get it. Wowza!
As usual, Larry's choice was the best. The flounder was tender and flaky and a delicious combination for the spinach & red peppers.
This tart was DELICIOUS! There was a crust on the bottom with something akin to apple pie filling topped with crunchy sweet pecans and then covered in whipped cream. I ate every bite and would have licked the ramekin if other people weren't in the restaurant with us!

Why Should You Go? The food was good - it had high points (dessert) and things that were just fine (turkey) - but all in all a good meal. I can totally picture taking my Mom if she were in town - we could go to a show and stay the night (she loves old buildings and would talk their ear off about the history). They do get booked up on nights the Symphony is playing - so be sure to call ahead for reservations.
I also have to say - there was an older couple there meeting another couple. They made our night. They were prepping for another couple - the wife is a known complainer - they said "Oh this spot will be too cold, and this one too dark." They looked at us and laughed and said to make sure we didn't hear any of it! Then when the friends arrived - it all came true! Word for word - "this is too cold, this is too dark". They walked with their friends to the other room and the husband stopped at our table and said "He's a psychologist...and she needs one." I LOST IT. I so wanted to hang out with them for dinner!
