Started as a three-seat takeout joint in 1998, the farm-to-table restaurant now features 30 seats and fare like brined Amish organic chicken, mac and cheese with cayenne bread crumbs, and Anson Mills polenta with wild mushrooms. Seasonal specials include grilled peach salad with pecan pralines and blue cheese, or crispy tofu with swiss chard and orange-ginger glaze. The bar area is BYOB, with a cocktail menu in the works (expect a grapefruit-bourbon lemonade), but you can find preselected wine pairings next door at Square Wine.
