What's on the menu?

It's fun to be at least a little surprised when a Farm-to-Table meal appears. But we'll mention that, as you are seated, white and red wine will be offered along with an amazing charcuterie tray, followed by two styles of rave salads along with sliced Beef Tenderloin (gluten free), Chicken Roulades with Spinach-Artichoke Filling and two no-tell desserts you'll want to pass around the table more than once!
