Fall Menu (Mediterranean Diet Inspired)
For this year's fall menu we are focusing on new flavor, culture, and health. We zeroed in on the Mediterranean Diet, focusing on flavor first. Our menu is warm and fall-oriented with ingredients that include fresh herbs and spices such as oregano, sage, and tarragon, roasted root vegetables, warm hummus, tomatoes, goat cheese, feta cheese, and more.
