Hello Friends and Lovers,

Also, our crimson, garnet, rouge and rose menu is up! Read below…

It is important to know that this is NOT a couples only dinner. We are celebrating love and good food and that applies to everyone—Friends and Lovers alike.

*We reserve the right to adjust the menu as we see fit, in order to create the best experience possible for our guests. For our dinners, we source as much organic and local foods as possible. We use whole, clean, natural ingredients to create a sequence of dishes that will have you beyond satisfied and definitely inspired. No processed foods or fake meats will make it onto our table, and know that we strive to create a menu that is either entirely, or almost entirely, vegan (we do use raw, wild-harvested honey) and gluten-free (look for the GF by each item that is sans gluten). When you see menu items listed as “cheese,” it is a delicious, homemade non-dairy, non-soy cheese. When you see “ice cream” on the menu, it is a soy- and dairy-free version that will have you wondering how it could possibly be that good without the dairy. Promise.
