Contemporary American
Small neighborhood restaurant serving candle-lit dinners on a vine covered garden patio.

We source from local farms and vendors, use herbs from our own gardens, cure our own meat & fish, and do our own baking, preserves and pickling.

We also source from the farmers and vendors of the Bloomingdale Farmers' Market that we helped to establish in 2009.

We do private events and special dinners upon request including weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, coursed dinners, and cocktail receptions.

For special events or parties of 10 or more please contact the restaurant at
