Originally intended as a simple neighborhood eatery, owners Sharon Pachter and Charles Kiely have gained recognition for executing a small menu of seasonally focused dishes drawn from locally sourced produce. A heavy curtain shields the front exterior’s windows, separating the outside street view from the minimally decorated interior of olive-green and gray walls, and wood floors. Indoor tables are packed closely together and only fit about 30 people, though a rear outdoor patio has more spacious seating. The slow-cooked duck breast and roasted halibut with ginger are signature dishes. An extensive wine list consists of primarily California labels, as well as a selection of international beers.
