Introducing Our New Menu
New Menu Thumbnail

Since we opened our fireplace bar eight years ago, we have held aside certain special nuggets of pleasure solely for our bar menu. Smaller plates which married well with our cocktails and wine by the glass. After hearing for years, “Wouldn’t it be nice if those items were available in the dining room as well…”, we have changed our menu to do just that. Our new, and newly formatted, menu not only integrates the two separate menus, it gives new emphasis to Executive Chef Josh Lewin’s delicious and creative appetizers. While your favorite dishes are still there, there is much much more. Come on in and give it a try!
