Livingston sure needed this little restaurant on the square to balance out the ubiquitous fast-food chains. Inhabiting the 1935 Mistrot Building, once home to the Mistrot Brothers Dry Goods chain, the meticulously renovated dining room incorporates reclaimed and regional materials, resulting in an atmosphere with bygone-era charm that complements the thoughtful, carefully crafted fare overseen by owner and chef Paul Escamilla. We arrived on a Friday night tired and hungry from a day on the road, and we were nourished with the decadent fried mushrooms served with a ranch-style dipping sauce. We were thrilled with the sautéed shrimp in a white wine–garlic sauce and delighted by the house-cut sirloin topped with mushrooms and onions.
