Dinner Menu, Fall 2014

We are driven by great ingredients, fantastic staff & our food-loving guests to develop healthful & appealing seasonal menus.  Our menu changes every day; here are some samples of the kinds of things we’re cooking this season….

As chefs, it makes sense to us to have a menu that changes with the seasons:  we can serve ingredients at their peak, and buy local and organic as much as possible.  The focus is always on quality & consistency.  Since we make almost everything in-house ourselves, it is normally no problem for us to accommodate people’s dietary restrictions.   Our “half portion options”  give our guests even more healthy and delicious choices.
