Q: What is a tasting menu?
A: A tasting menu is a dinner consisting of several small dishes or courses that make up an entire meal. They allow us to showcase all the great ingredients that are available in a season and allow the guest to sample many dishes instead of just a couple. An example of what you would be served for an 8-course tasting menu are two appetizers, a soup, salad, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts. Each dish is intentionally portioned or a size that will ensure that the guest will be able to enjoy all the courses-not so small you leave hungry, but not so large you cannot finish dinner or are uncomfortably full.
Q: How much food is a course?
A: Each course is different.Some are big, some are a bite or two. We strive to balance each course and your meal as a whole. You will always leave full, but ideally not overly sated.
Q: How long should we expect our tasting experience to last?
A: A typical dining experience last from 2 to 3 hours. Although this can vary during high volume times. If you have a time constraint please notify us when making your reservation or notify the staff upon arrival. We can accommodate all reasonable request.
Q: What if I have dietary restrictions or if I don’t like to eat certain types of foods?
A: Prior to your day of reservation, please feel free to notify our restaurant of any dietary restrictions or foods to avoid. We will do our best to accommodate all requests and we will notify our guests in advance if we cannot meet their expectations.
Q: Is there a dress code?
A: No. We urge guest to dress appropriately for the season and to be comfortable. Our dining room tends to be a little warm in the summer and a bit cool in the winter do to the age of our building.
Q: Can you tell us what you will be serving for the date of our reservation?
A: We strive to find the best seasonal ingredients and serve them at the peak of flavor. In order to do this our menu changes frequently. We ask our guest to participate and be open to the exciting and fun experience of a tasting menu. We want our guest to be happy and we understand that some guest just don’t enjoy certain foods with this in mind please notify us if there is a food, texture, or preparation you strongly dislike.
