Healthy eating is the focus here, but you likely won’t be concentrating on that as you tuck in to the refined, toothsome food prepared here. Meals are served in a handsome country dining room, with fresh flowers and antique furnishings, and the owners welcome guests like old friends. If you are looking for a quick bite, go elsewhere; this is an experience to savor, and the kitchen prepares everything to order and won't be rushed. Seasonal fresh herbs and produce drive the offerings, with daily specials accounting for many, including fresh daily seafood specials, like mahi mahi ceviche or salmon stewed with fresh pumpkin. The couscous Niçoise, with fresh tuna, olives and asparagus, is out of this world, and the Verde Mesa rice, with vegetables, walnuts, and cranberries, is side dish that goes with everything. Save room for dessert, with daily inspirations like mango tart or vegetarian chocolate cake. Also, try a house cocktail, like the Rum Green Infusion with basil, lemon and cucumber. The table turnover is slow here; but they’ll take your phone number and call your cell when your table is ready.
