Went last week to this new restaurant opened by Patrick and Doris Saurette of Il Portico fame. A great little room (60 or so seats), with a french bistro theme. Some opening jitters, our waiter was a little nervous and not as friendly or knowledgable as those around him, and he did forget to bring us bread. Patrick and Doris were very active, helping deliver food, clear dishes, serve wine and generally host. Room is very comfortable, seats especially so, and it has a great feel to it. The food was good...the price point for entrees is mid range, the highest priced item at around $23.00. Portions were not huge, but the food was very tasty (Duck confit, lamb shanks, Halibut, and the Wild mushroom soup, beet salad and Steak tartare for starters). The duck was very tasty, if a little salty, the halibut was perfectly cooked, and the lamb shank was very nice. The wine list is reasonably priced, and not too large for know. I understand this is an opening list and will grow with time. Overall a very nice restaurant, and a real bargain in a town where $30 - 45 entrees are becoming the norm.
