Dine inside on a Green Chili, Chicken Enchiladas and Sweet Corn Dip beneath wooden rafters, or take a famous Caroline salad and glass of robust wine onto our outdoor patio. Grab lunch with friends and then linger into the late afternoon with a craft cocktail as you people watch along buzzing Congress Ave. To-go meals are also available.
