The Dining Room features a chic, relaxed atmosphere. Posh, high backed, semi-circular banquettes surround our dining room and offer comfortable and private seating. Utilizing locally sourced products, Executive Chef Eric Watson has developed a seasonally inspired menu based on traditional American fare. A diverse wine list has been created to complement the cuisine.
The Alleyway Bar offers an informal, upbeat vibe featuring ice cold Grey Goose on tap. Whether seated around the horseshoe bar, at the high top tables, or in the mezzanine overlooking the bar, you can enjoy the full dinner menu or indulge in delectable appetizers.

Eric Watson | Executive Chef
Eric’s passion for all things culinary originated in a quaint Colorado town where he grew up. Small game hunting and trout fishing helped guide him to a style of cooking based on whole, fresh ingredients. Eric believes food should be prepared with quality ingredients and classic technique combined with a simplistic approach.
Eric began his restaurant career as a dishwasher and bus boy. His first culinary position was at the Sopris Restaurant in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, working under a Swiss born chef. He worked passionately to master the basics of knife skills and “Garde Manger” also paying close attention to every move the senior chefs made throughout their shift.
Chef Eric pursued formal culinary training immediately following high school graduation. During his time as a culinary apprentice, he traveled throughout the United Stated with a culinary team, taking part in multiple cooking competitions. Eric has cooked in numerous fine dining establishments in Colorado, Arizona, Hawaii and Rhode Island. He never would have imagined ending up in Fargo/Moorhead, but if asked now, he can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Sara Watson | Business Manager
Sara is a Red River Valley native; she grew up on a farm near Glyndon, MN. Being raised as a farm kid gave her a lifelong love of learning about food, and a passion for local foods and supporting our local growers.
After high school, Sara attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis where she obtained a bachelor degree in Art History. Throughout this time, she worked in restaurants in Minneapolis where she developed a love for cooking and entertaining. This led her to pursue training in the culinary arts in Colorado.
Sara graduated from a three year culinary apprenticeship of Keystone Resort in Summit County, Colorado. She is a certified culinarian through the American Culinary Federation and possesses an Associate’s degree in Applied Science in Culinary Arts.
Sara and Eric met in Colorado but decided to open their business in the Red River Valley. As the business has grown, so has their family. Four kids and their activities keep Sara running around more than working in the kitchen. Her role in the business has changed throughout the years from cook to Business Manager. She handles the bookkeeping, publicity and marketing for the company. An avid gardener, Sara also enjoys educating her own kids about whole foods, where their food comes from, and nutrition. Sara volunteers in the schools with the EAT program through the Barry Foundation which focuses on these matters as well.
