This cozy neighborhood spot is the perfect place for warm and inviting dinner in the middle of winter. Located in a 1917 converted Victorian home, Heritage Table offers guests a completely unique dining experience with locally sourced meats and produce, as well as farm-grown ingredients.
All of the delicious options on the menu are completely made from scratch—whether it’s the short rib (carrot-rutabaga mash, fried lacinato kale, horseradish gremolata, beef demiglace, bacon-sage vinaigrette) or mushroom agnolotti (housemade mushroom-stuffed pasta, asiago, spinach-walnut pesto, focaccia croutons, arugula, creme fraiche). A firm believer in the motto “food is personal”, the team behind this incredible restaurant works diligently to find the highest quality ingredients from the best farms, ranches, and artisans in the area.
For an elegant night of fine dining and fantastic steaks, our suggestion would be to head to Knife—the highly acclaimed restaurant by the notable Chef John Tesar. Tesar was recently nominated for a James Beard award and starred as a contestant on Bravo’s “Top Chef”.
