We are not yet taking reservations for this event, but if you are interested please let us know and we can add you to the wait list, as we predict the event to fill up incredibly fast.

     

  • January Dinner Event, Sunday Jan 29

    WOW!

    Wow is all that comes to mind when I realize that January is already almost over… It still feels like the first week of the new year, and here we are, already approaching February. So happy 2012 everybody!

    I am very excited to announce our January dinner event. Inspired by local, seasonal produce, as well as my lust for the return of warmer days,  we’ve decided to give it a bit of a Mediterranean  flair.
