On the Street

What's your favorite locally owned restaurant?


Well, we've only started going there recently, but the Wave [Island Sports Grill and Sushi Bar] has such a huge assortment of food, and it's very good; the fried food is not greasy at all. And the staff is very accommodating.


That's a tough call, but I'd have to go with Wild Sage; they do so many things right, and the waitstaff takes great care of you, even if you're sitting at the bar.


The Saranac.


So many restaurants don't make it, but the owners — their names are Michelle and Brandyn — have done a fantastic job of keeping the place going. The mac and cheese is the best. And the pretzels!


China Dragon — it's been around forever, so they're doing something right. The staff is great, the portions are amazing — you never leave hungry. I love their aquarium. And the drinks are strong.


The Wandering Table.

Why do you like it?

It's just amazing food, and it's the coolest experience. You pick your price point, and you get so much good food — seven to 10 courses. It's an intimate experience, which I love. It's all fresh, all locally sourced, always seasonal.
