Foodie Friday: Town loves you (and we love Town)

I was treated to the most excellent of birthday dinners at Town by two dear friends last month. As someone who loves good food, it was a surprise that I had not already been since it opened in June of 2010. Having looked at the menu beforehand, I was excited when the night of our reservations […]
