    Everything on the menu is cooked over a cherry- and maple-wood fire. The result: roasted Idaho trout and charred brussels sprouts with lemon, feta, and farro—all served on mismatched vintage plates.

    Do not skip the chocolate chip cookie. Even if you're stuffed, which you will be, get it. It's amazing! Great restaurant. Great service. Cannot wait to come back.

    Great new American cuisine, occasionally with a Japanese flair. The cocktails are delightful, and the decor is really nice

    Braised short rib is delicious. Drinks and service were amazing. Can’t go wrong here!

    Everything is cooked in a wood-fired oven, get the meat pies (with an exclamation point on the menu), roasted seasonal vegetables, and S’Mores for dessert. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    If you only have one thing make it the cookie and milk. Out of this world.

    Monday night is Pizza Night. Some of the most tasty pizza I've had from a brick oven. Go with the classic Margherita.

    Ludd Board and two glasses of wine is plenty of food for two people and will run about $55. No tipping - it's included.

    Seasonally inspired cuisine, all cooked in a wood-fire oven.

    The interior, with its rustic planks and decorative cooper molds and trashy-glam brass Chandeliers is part Little House onf the Prairie, part Portland punk, with a wry touch of Vaudevill razzle-dazzle

    Trout, rabbit. The menu seems to change everyday according to what ingredients are fresh. The environment was nice.

    Drinks were a bit pricey but the dishes were unique and delicious. Would have preferred them to be a bit bigger though so perhaps not for the uber-hungry.

    Food was phenomenal, was totally spoiled by the extremely rude bar tender though. Tip: don't sit at the bar!

    Sit at the bar with Suzanne. There are only four bar stools, but the joy of watching her make drinks adds to the extreme pleasure of eating the food. Don't miss the chocolate chip cookie for dessert!
