Like most mothers, Connie gave her son a solid start. It was her 15 years in the restaurant business and time as owner of the Herb Garden that provided chef Tim Barry the organized base he needed to build his successful, unique place. In 2008, Tim took over the rustic-chic log cabin, where model airplanes hang from the ceiling and baskets perch on wooden beams. Tim’s love affair with cooking began with fish, so it’s no surprise that the menu features a wide range of seafood, including seared ahi tuna, chili-glazed mahimahi, almond-crusted walleye and New England-style crab cakes with homemade remoulade sauce. Steaks, chicken sandwiches and build-your-own burgers leave meat-lovers satisfied. Most satisfying for Barry: Mom still prepares Timbuktoo’s soups and desserts.
