M’s Pub We love the lavosh. It’s a great place to get lunch or dinner and a great glass of wine. It’s also the place Dusty took me on our first date. La Buvette Wine & Grocery This will remind you of a cafe in Paris. You can choose a glass or bottle of wine from their selection and just pay a small corking fee. There is a great menu. We usually get the cheese plate and humus with french bread. Nicola’s in the Market This a wonderful place for a great Italian dish. They have a nice lunch and dinner menu. If you’re lucky you might even get Nichola as your waitress. Upstream Brewing Company This is one of our favorite places to go for a superb beer. Dusty drinks the Capital Pale Ale and I drink the O Gold! Dusty’s favorite food is the shrimp white pizza and I really enjoy the smoked gouda soup.
