Walls are hung with family photos, and tables are jammed with regulars feasting on home-style cooking that stays impressively modern in the tradition of founder Ann Cashion, a capital cuisine superstar who sold the spot to her longtime sous chef many years ago. The menu at this neighborhood favorite changes daily, but roast chicken, steak, and seafood are frequent choices. Side dishes, such as sweet potatoes roasted with fig-scented bourbon, sometimes upstage the main
course. If it's available, order the chocolate panna cotta topped with espresso gel and shortbread. If you're dining with a local, make sure to ask for the 10% "neighborhood discount."
