Fodor's Review

Restaurant owner Sanford Amato opened the Sanford restaurant in 1989 in his family's former grocery store. The grocery store turned restaurant is known for its delectable foods luring customers back for more, and it's no wonder, with the restaurant's sleekly inviting setting, convivial atmosphere, and artfully created dishes. The menu changes frequently, some dishes have included grilled pear and Roquefort tart with caramelized onions; grilled wild sturgeon on crab hash; and a fanciful finale of banana butterscotch toffee tart with banana rum ice cream.
