Local Dining: Dock Lunch

Your Window to Home Cooking starts here…

Well actually it starts at home.  However if you have an opportunity to have as good or better a meal in a restaurant that resembles your grandmother’s home, then look no further.  The owner appropriately refers to it  as “my apartment café” as the exact location was her home.

Our charcuterie starter included parma prosciutto and a whipped feta with olive oil. Photo: d. king

Noticed the heritage building with the inviting sign out front by accident during the summer when I was on Main Street. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed at the time.  A few of the surrounding business owners who were sitting out front raved about the regular lunches that are served only by RSVP and then received at the takeout window.  Elizabeth; the owner and chef, used to reside at what is now the restaurant, specializing in lunch and brunch menu.  I called to make a reservation and was told they were opening for dinner (and would continue to on occasion for private parties) starting September 10th.  Voilà!  Went with my friend Janice on a lovely evening where we sat outside.  The inside is very tiny with only a few tables that were already reserved.  Lucky for us the weather cooperated.  The food is local, sustainable, creative, comfort food.  Of course I had to check it out.
