When: 2011

Pleasant bistro and wine bar in Salem's historic district.

Directions: Go through the shopping mall across from the Peabody Essex Museum.

This was our only other non-seafood meal during our June visit to Salem. We had lunch on a Tuesday although I notice that their website says they open at 4 pm.

The meal began with two disappointments. The posted menu we had seen on the previous day in their window had listed homemade flat breads. But we learned that they were only available on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for lunch. Then the entree of a duck leg confit was not available when I tried to order it. It would have been helpful if we had been told that when seated.

Instead I had their burger which was delicious. This was huge slab of delicious beef from Vermont with nicely melted cheese. Along with it I had French fries which were tasty but in the softer style we experienced in Salem. My wife had a smoked turkey club sandwich. As seems to be common in Salem, the portions were huge.

With a glass of Rhone wine and an ale the meal for two was $37.
