Spring Is In The Air

New Season Brings New Menu Items,

Fun Events & More!


Spring has arrived in full bloom and we are celebrating with some wonderful new menu items, (like our Hibiscus Tacos, pictured above), plus fun pop-up events here on Market Street! As you may have noticed, the last big storm of winter damaged our beloved Bay Laurel tree beyond repair and we were so heartbroken to say goodbye to the lovely centerpiece of our garden. In addition to perfectly shading areas of our outdoor space, our special tree also offered us delicious flavors from its leaves and branches that our creative kitchen team utilized often.

Though we were saddened by this loss, we are also reminded of the beauty of change and the promise of growth. Springtime has a way of reviving everything it touches, and despite the loss of our Bay Laurel giant, we are looking forward to the newness and growth of this season!


Our Gardens Are Growing!


One of our former chefs, Alex, is helping us reclaim our garden spaces and we are actively working to cultivate the ground and plant beautiful new friends like lots of herbs, edible flowers, beets, sugar snap peas, lettuce, and more. We are so excited to share the fruits of our labor with you on the menu when they’re ready! In the meantime, our feline garden guardian will keep watch over the seedlings.

Pop-Ups Worth
Popping In For

Now that we’re all ready to jump into spring, let’s talk about some of the upcoming events that we’re creating to add a little extra spice to your month. Every single month we are having an incredible cheese & wine pop-up with Alison Leber, along with a rotating bar pop-up. We’re setting up in our beautiful studio space, just through the garden from the penny room, and you’ll feel like you’ve suddenly escaped the city!


Monthly Cheese &
Wine Pop-Up

Our cheese & wine events will take place on the last Sunday of each month, (unless otherwise noted), and you’ll get to experience the brilliance of local legend Alison, who owned Brie & Bordeaux, and ran the education program for Sugar Mountain (aka Beecher's).

In addition, you’ll make friends with an exclusive, curated selection of wines, available for you to taste and purchase at regular retail pricing. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss these future cheese & wine shop soirées in our garden studio:
