We are absolutely honored to receive our first Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Our aim has always been to make exceptional, small producer wines accessible and approachable to wine drinkers of all kinds. We are absolutely thrilled to be recognized for our achievements.
When crafting our list, we have always approached our program with a critical eye. We strive to ride the edges of tradition and innovation; celebrate small farmers and producers who practice their craft using time-honored wine-making techniques and the wild-haired mavericks testing the boundaries of what is possible.

We are honored to officially be the second restaurant in Connecticut recognized by the James Beard Foundation as committed to their ‘Smart Catch’  program!  

We couldn't agree more with the James Beard Foundation when it comes to the importance of sustainably caught fish, it's the bedrock that we've built our restaurant's foundation. 

We're so fortunate to live in an area where we can make a direct difference in our environment by the way we source our fish and build meaningful relationships with the fishermen who fish our waters.


We're in search of highly motivated and creative line cooks, servers, hosts, dishwashers, baristas, breakfast servers & more! Join our growing team as we work to create the ultimate experience for our guests while fostering career development and educational experience for our team members.
