Nice little corner space, very charming, cozy yet informal. Service was very attentive and the overall food was quite good. We started with oysters and scallops - the oysters were divine, the scallops were good enough. The hamburger on a sweet brioche bun was absolutely delicious. The salmon with leeks and mushrooms - would have liked a lot less salmon and a lot more of the leeks and mushrooms because there were excellent as was a side of beans and ramps. They clearly have a great handle on the vegetables - would have liked to have more... The pasta special seemed a bit light in portion but otherwise quite tasty. The desert of lemon pound cake with blueberry ice cream - great idea, the cake was very rich but good with an ice cream portion far too small to balance it. Serviceable wine list - with the usual hits. Will definitely return and would recommend to friends.
