This historic house-turned-restaurant is a quiet spot with limited seating that works great for impressing the person your overbearing friend set you up with who also has an overbearing friend. The menu is pretty short and full of things that are easily shared if the date is going well, and easy to hoard to yourself if not. Try the smoked mushrooms and grilled carrots, and if things work out, take your overbearing friend here next time as a thank you.
