In Everything We Do
You’re looking for a night of laughs. That kind of night starts out best with great food, a glass of wine, and quality time with people.
That’s what we’re doing here at Gussie’s. Recipes are inspired by my grandmother and from trips to Italy. Our meals aren’t improvised. They’re inspired by love. It’s how we made a neighborhood restaurant that feels like home.
