Food

The chef-driven menu features the very best our region has to offer and features seasonal, sustainable products whenever possible.

Chef Jessica is always on the hunt for America’s truly great foods, such as Berkshire pork, artisanal Gorgonzola, and grass-fed beef.  Her menu ranges from fun, whimsical dishes to approachable, familiar dishes. Finally, in always keeping our guest’s needs at the top of our minds, we offer healthy, creative dishes including gluten-free and vegetarian options.
