New American Restaurant

“Forest Hills: A true gourmet experience. Warm vibe, amazing food - not large portions but they take the time to completely describe their food to you as they deliver it. Special place which is a fine dinner location at night and a great coffee shop by day. Again- just across the station on the other side. ”

Just walk through and you will find several restaurants worthy of enjoying. -The Indian food is great here and we prefer it to Bukarra. The staff is friendly and the food is fresh and delicious.

Bar

“Everything is good, from the breakfast to the dinner specialties! If there is a restaurant that will satisfy your cravings, even if you are not very sure what you want, this might be it. This is probably the best bet for serious breakfast and brunch, and a great informal lunch place. The good thing is that they always serve food throughout the day.”
