Yeah, I know there's already a thread - sorry - but I thought that this place deserved a bump here. Just took a family party of seven for Saturday lunch - the place was empty (what is everyone thinking?!) other than the owner and his children eating at the bar, but filled up slightly later, and I confirmed that evenings are as hectic as ever*. The food was very good, not quite always excellent but solidly enjoyable and with some highlights (the dark sausage, the white asparagus/ham/pecorino, the foie gras); the service was really very good. And the wine was significantly improved: a new Spanish red by the glass really _is_ outstanding (and also unobtainable, it seems, elsewhere. I think for the 7 of us, all in, it was $140 or so. Excellent value.

[*I talked with the owner** briefly, looking at the cute patio, and he mentioned that he's trying to improve the walkability of downtown Milford by having a restaurant open for lunch, even if not the best economic decision. Good to hear.]

**I assume - certainly seems to be in charge, may also be a cross between maitr d' and chef? Dunno yet :).
