We Will Politely Decline Substitutions. Please Inform Your server of Any Allergies. We encourage sharing Plates, and Tasting Things!!
We try to source as best we can. All meats are ABF and treated as humanely as the industry provides.
If you think the portions are small and the prices are high, it’s because good food isn’t cheap.
