    I love Mag Pie!!!!

    I vote Wine Down for best small bites food. We think it’s the best place for a small intimate quick dinner. Reasonably priced and more quiet than other restaurants, where you can actually talk and hear your dinner partners.

    Thank you for this list. We agree with all your selections, except are surprised to see Falls Landing missing from this list. It is a long-time favorite of ours. The menu is good and the specials and food are consistently excellent.
