Update 5-15-12: only 20 Chef’s Tasting Menus remaining for the evening! Call ahead soon to reserve!

We’re so very excited to be participating in this year’s Food Revolution Day on May 19th! What is it, you ask? Well, in short, it’s an international push to bring awareness to how people eat. Healthy food, local food, organic food, sustainable food… these all add up to good food. All over the world, people are celebrating in their own ways—hosting dinner parties, visiting farms, teaching cooking classes, and more. We’re celebrating, too! We’ve put together an exclusive tasting menu for the evening, full of local, sustainable, organic, or biodynamic ingredients. Read on, and be sure to check out the links and learn a bit about where the food for this event comes from!
