Tenant only has 20 seats and a minimal, whitewashed interior, but your focus and attention should be on the food anyway. The ever-changing, six-course tasting menu takes a homey dish like cheese-stuffed pasta and elevates it with a filling of funky, locally-crafted Camembert-style cheese. Since chefs double as servers, the ingredients and preparation of each menu item are explained in the same level of detail as a hardcore comics fan describing the latest Marvel movie.
You’ll definitely need a reservation—try for the spot at the counter that faces the open kitchen—and just know they fill up months in advance. Get there early so you can stop by Tenant’s adjacent bar space, which is simply called “Next Door” and serves classic cocktails and light snacks like chicken liver pate.
