The Progress Restaurant Review:

The Progress is a project from the busy people at State Bird Provisions, located directly next door. Pay attention as you may miss it as signage is almost nonexistent (and one of the numbers from the address has fallen off). When you do find your way to and through the nondescript entry, you'll find a warm and boisterous interior filled with the energy of the crowd and the what's-in-season-now cuisine. Curved wood-slated walls, rough timber planks and a small upstairs balcony give almost the feeling of dining below deck on a whaling ship. The menu directs groups of diners to "choose four" of the family-style dishes, which incorporate various local and in-season products. Fried chicken is a favorite, and crispy pig's ear should make your foursome if it's available. Fall menus favor various forms of mushrooms. Whole roasted fish makes a wonderful presentation and meal. Specialty drinks and a variety of wines by the glass ensure libations will contribute to the mood and ambiance. Desserts, from cheese to seasonally infused ice creams to prepared items, are an appropriate finish.
