Fried Chicken DINNERS


We obviously embrace a lot of old school European recipes on our regular menu, but there’s always an underline history of being raised in the South with. What that translates to in the restaurant is a comforting gesture, a respect for local produce and proteins, a deep rooted hospitality, and an overall nostalgia for the food we were raised with. In honor of this, we’ll have a southern throwback every Third Thursday of the Month in the form of a good ole’ fashioned fried chicken dinner. We’ll serve up three cuts of chicken, two down home sides, and one of our big buttery biscuits for $19! Make a reservation or just pop on in! Regular menu available as well.

Upcoming Dates: 9/19, 10/17, 11/21…and so on!
