Our prix fixe menu changes weekly and highlights local, seasonal ingredients. Chef owned and operated, the Foster Harris House serves dinner to the public on Fridays and Saturday nights by reservation.
Note: Because of our extremely small size and prix fixe menu, we're unable to accommodate dietary restrictions. If you have a food allergy, we're happy to let you know whether or not that ingredient is included. If you're not able to dine with us because our current menu doesn't fit your needs or preferences, please keep an eye out for future menus, since we'll be changing it up often!
