106 N. Main St. Edwardsville, IL 62025 | Collinsville/ Edwardsville | 618-656-9001

Location Description:

A veteran of Gerard Craft's kitchen at Niche, chef Amy Zupanci cut her teeth at Savoy and several other New York City restaurants. Now, in a lovely space in downtown Edwardsville, she serves forth exquisite seasonal cuisine. The menu changes frequently, often from day to day, but Zupanci is especially adept with meats. Braised "Italian" beef, if available, is a comforting delight. Seafood dishes, especially scallops, are also excellent. A five-course tasting menu is an ideal way to experience Zupanci's talents and the day's bounty - at $50 per person, it won't set you back much more than any combination of appetizer, entrée and dessert.
