Thankfully, our city’s creative chefs and talented designers have not given up on us (yet). Why not spoil yourself and your loved ones with a gorgeous holiday dinner in a fabulous atmosphere. But hurry up and make your reservations today.

A tiny but very intimate 7-seat counter restaurant, Ernst sources regional produce and works directly with the farmers.
