What They’re Known for: Up the Creek describes their take on cuisine as “Elevated American,” and the description is an apt one. All ingredients are fresh and locally sourced from sustainable sources, making it a popular choice for “green” patrons. Fan favorites include the short rib with gouda mac & cheese and lamb chops with pomegranate mint chutney, but every dish is prepared with exquisite attention to detail and served with some of the best service in the industry.
What to Watch for: Up the Creek is a small, intimate restaurant, which creates a wonderful backdrop for a romantic evening. This does mean that seating can be limited, so make a reservation if you don’t want to wait for a table. Portion sizes can be on the small side as well, so feel free to try one of their delicious appetizers.
