The menu shows global influences, with intriguing Mediterranean and Eastern European nods, including a tartlet topped with a smoked whitefish kielbasa, house kraut, and pickled mustard seeds. Fresh-baked breads and desserts by pastry chef Hattie McDaniel show attention to detail from start to finish. Dinner Tues.–Sat.
