Along with its busy days and festive nights, December marks the arrival of winter, which has been especially evident this past week with our super-chilly (and icy!) weather. Come in from the cold this week to a classic, cozy lineup highlighted by rustic Italian bread, earthy Chanterelle mushrooms and locally-crafted grape cider, as well as our own seafood-kissed cioppino soup.
