In the Fall of 1996, I was looking for a spot to open a Restaurant. After viewing many potential sites, I was driving down Sixth Avenue when I saw a small “For Sale by Owner” sign in the front yard of this building. At that time the building was owned by the Hospital down the street and this was the first day they had placed it on the market.We started ordering equipment and the contractor and his crew worked feverishly to convert the small kitchen into a commercial Restaurant kitchen. To my amazement, we were open in four weeks with a lot of help from family and friends.We have grown over the years. In 2002 we acquired and remodeled the building next door, joining it to the Restaurant to create space for our Bistro and the “Magnolia Room” catering facility. Family, my husband John (he’s the wine guy), our Chef, Matt Parkins,the Staff and you our Customers continue to help us thrive.
