When I first moved here years ago I had a few fabulous meals at Chez TJ but now they go for those annoying tasting menus (many courses of small pretentious portions). I know the 'foodies' go mad for this but I would love it if they also offered a regular menu, a few salads and entrees to choose from. Maybe George and Scott will come up with something new that will encourage the locals to dine there more frequently.
Have no idea why the other posts are talking about teachers and unions...let's stay on topic people.

My husband and I love Chez TJ. He proposed to me there seven years ago! It is wonderful to have this level of restaurant so nearby in our community for our special occasions. Their hardworking and dedicated staff always make us feel very welcome and special. That the chef uses local ingredients is also a plus!
