Recently opened (re-opened).

Visit one: house cured salmon with jumbo capers and dill creme fraise; a spinich & goat cheese salad; some champange.

Visit two: house cured salmon; shrimp BLT w/ fries; glass of riesling and glass of sauvignon blanc. Great espresso.

This is a great lunch option. I need to go deeper into the menu although I will have a hard time not getting the salmon. The sandwich bread is fantastic and if the shrimp BLT is any indication, then I'm betting they are all great. Sandwiches come with heavenly fries. Portions run (too?) large. Packed both visits, though I was at bar so had no problem. Very friendly service, nice decor. Lunch prices average: sandwiches $10, entrees $12, apps $7, soups $6, wines $7. A good value, IMO.
