To be honest, this place is geared towards the adventurous eater. Which I am not. However, it's neat to see the city has a spot serving things like pig tongue and head cheese.

This is a funky, wild, wicked spot to try things you'd never find at a grocery store. I don't even know what I ate, but I know I will be back.

The “combo” plate of charcuterie, cheese, and various accompaniments (AKA a plate of things) is a great way to start. the Potato Wrapped Cod is a work of art. You can see the attention to detail and the results of making most everything in-house.

Did you ever think you’d have pickled mustard seed on a house-baked cracker? Chinched!
