This old auto repair shop has been converted into a homey restaurant with mismatched tables and chairs and a happy-go-lucky attitude. The daytime brings Southern dishes such as pot roast, meatloaf and smothered pork chops. At night, French dishes such as duck terrine, rabbit and roasted duck breast take over. The menu is small and manageable, the food is excellent if somewhat uninspired, and the service is attentive and caring.
