I was fortunate to have met a local that told me about this paradise. 
I had to ask another local – “Where exactly is this place?” 
You see, they do not advertise and there are no signs. 
It is in an industrial building and you actually walk around to the
BACKDOOR
to enter.
In addition to the food, I loved everything about this place,
 the artwork, the space, the vibe, and the staff was so wonderful!
I left with a very happy belly and a very full heart!

Pan Seared Sea Scallops topped with a ginger sake beurre blanc, served with
sesame scallion rice cakes and seasonal vegetables
Oregon Country Beef – New York Strip steak seared and topped with roasted sweet onions

They also have daily specials.
