Dining Guide


Photograph by Cooper + Ricca

This small spot in Montrose gets raves for a seasonal menu that’s touted as modern American with Gulf Coast, French-Canadian, and Ukrainian influences. But Asian and Italian make an appearance too. Offerings as diverse as borscht, mushroom risotto, and tempura cauliflower share space on the menu with PEI oysters, tasting impossibly fresh with a smidge of coconut-lime granita, and house-made head cheese paired tastefully with soda crackers, prickly pear mustard, and radish slices. Entrées ran the gamut from grilled snook over soba noodles to meaty chicken-fried frog legs with herb-flecked waffles and red pepper jelly. Also noteworthy are the sliced duck breast, seared and roasted, with sumptuous collards in ham broth, and the tender hanger steak with a swath of horseradish cream and a toothsome potato pierogi.
