This 1825 church contains two dining options: a casual bistro and a more-formal dining room. The bistro menu lists soups, stews, and a make-your-own sandwich board, as well as traditional entrées. Expect a lively crowd at the bar, especially on weekends. With white-cloth-draped tables, the main dining area is quieter. The food veers from creative to comforting. A popular starter is baby-arugula salad with goat-cheese wontons. For entrees, try the horseradish-crusted ahi
tuna with miso aioli or the grilled, dry-aged T-bone served with Roquefort blue cheese butter.

Been here twice, and both times were excellent. Long sequences of courses focusing on ingredients with few embellishments. Meats (lamb especially) are excellent - succulent, tender, flavorful. But most memorable are their treatments of vegetables and breads, usually my least favorite parts of the meal. Some of their food philosophies are a little overtly liberal for me, but the quality is undeniable. A sensory experience.
