Fodor's Review

Elegant and dimly lighted, with wood paneling, lace curtains, and an oft-glowing fireplace, "The Gnome" is where locals go for a romantic dinner. The overall feel is French, but the menu goes beyond the Gallic, with entrées such as calamari almandine, sausage pasta, and lobster tacos. The French onion soup always satisfies, and the roast duck with orange sauce and barbecued beef ribs are excellent as well. The crème brûlée makes for a sweet finale. For lighter dinner fare, check out the café menu.
