Dining Outside the Home: Second Street, an American Bistro in Williamsburg, Virginia. The moment you step through the doorway, the aroma of freshly baked cookies greets you. Next, the courteous maitre d’ offers you a free sample from the nearby pastry case. With a cookie to whet your appetite, a quick glance around the room indicates an atmosphere that is as upscale as well as it is comfortable. Be forewarned! The portions are generous from the Grilled Romaine Salad to the juicy Bison Meatloaf and popular Baby Back Ribs. Have no regrets when choosing from the tempting dessert offerings. The gluten-free Flourless Chocolate Torte is a satisfying grande finale.
