Fairly new fine dining spot in the building formerly occupied by Growlers pub. The relatively short lunch menu was heavy on the beef, with a sirloin burger, a tenderloin and a striploin comprising 3 of the 5 mains. I had the tenderloin and it was tender, fairly-sized for lunch and well-cooked, if slightly bland. My companion seemed pleased with the burger, which was stuffed with a small amount of foie gras. Both mains were $19 and were accompanied by good frites of average thickness. Starter of nicoise salad with seared tuna was excellent, though pricey at $17. Other opening choices came in around the $10 mark. Service was genuine and sincere, despite a few miscues with the flatware. Would I repeat? Yes.
