Little Secret!

The place is a small restaurant with some of the best food in the city. It is a hush hush secret by the locals. The food is spectacular and the service amazing too. Go Hungry! Chef Brigtsen is one of the best chefs in the city. Shh. Don’t tell anyone. I might make some locals mad for telling you this! The appetizers are so good you wil want to eat it all. The Mustard & Cornmeal Fried Catfish did that to me!
