The best flavors come from eating in season.  The taste of a strawberry in winter is nowhere close to

what it's like in spring peak season.  I encourage you to eat within the season and enjoy this month's harvest!

Based on your preferences, each week a seasonal menu is offered from which you choose three complete meals.

Because of allergies, food preferences and dietary lifestyles, there is no set menu for each week.

Chef Virginia considers the family or individual's needs and creates a unique menu for each of them.
