Opened on a heritage sight in picturesque downtown Burlington [http://www.restaurantsburlington.net/] 8 years ago by owner Barry Glazier, this unique 2 storey house and its many rooms offer intimate dinners in a lively and engaging atmosphere. The stainless steel bar is a favorite spot for the after-work crowd, offering several varieties of freshly shucked oysters and over 15 premium vodkas.
