James Beard–nominated chef Justin Girouard is behind this local foods-focused restaurant, located in an airy space that contrasts the building’s raw edges—exposed framing and rough concrete—with leather-cushioned chairs and white tablecloths. Lunch is an affordable alternative to the formal dinner: Try the fried shrimp melt or indulgent Croque Monsieur.
