Wood is your typical New American restaurant. The wide-ranging menu appeals to pretty much everyone, with small and large plates, flatbreads, pastas, and a cheeseburger. The food here isn’t going to shock and/or amaze you, but it tastes great, and almost everything is made in house. Come here for drinks and a casual meal.
