Sanford Restaurant Review

: Owner and executive chef Justin Aprahamian offers an adventurous menu and is committed to using only seasonal ingredients at Sanford. Located inside a former grocery store that was in founder Sanford D'Amato's family for 80 years, Sanford was transformed into a sophisticated but cozy dining room where culinary prowess comes in the form of char-grilled elk loin with tart cherry essence and grilled, marinated tuna with cumin wafers. Select from the menu and take yourself on a self-guided tour through an exotic land of flavors; or, let the chef transport you on the whirlwind seven-course tour known as the “Menu Surprise.” Reservations book up weeks in advance.
