New Season Brings New Menu Items,
Fun Events & More!
Summer has arrived and we could not be more thrilled! To us, it means juicy, fresh tomatoes, long, lazy bbq-filled weekends, giant squash blossoms, cozy beach picnics, the sweetest strawberries, and of course dinner & cocktails on our lovely garden patio!
This season is so inspiring to our entire creative & talented team. There’s an abundance of extraordinary local fruit & produce when the sun has been shining with such determination, and we’re excited to share some of our delicious new seasonal offerings from cocktails to dessert!
Grab your calendars, friends: we’ve got some upcoming events that you won’t want to miss, particularly if you’re a fan of a good tiki party! Speaking of tiki parties, we are excited to welcome an excellent addition to our team — Kevin Mangini has taken on the role of bar manager and he’s got an exciting season of cocktails and bar pop-up’s (TIKI!), scheduled for you.
New Sips, Snacks & Sweets
Popping In For
Monthly Cheese &
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:
As we continue our monthly bar pop-up, the month of August we will journey down the tasty road of Tiki — Ahoy Matey! From the 40's-60's Tiki cocktails brought a new vibrancy to the American (and world) cocktail scene. Founding fathers like Donn Beach & and Victor Bergeron (of "Trader Vic's" fame) initially breathed life into this genre of cocktails, but it's grown far beyond its origins, for better or worse. From Mai Tai's to flaming scorpion bowls Tiki cocktails are extremely diverse.
Balance has not always been Tiki's strong suit, sometimes boozy enough to be set aflame and other times sweeter than your Grandma's pecan pie, but no longer. With a few classic Tiki cocktails as well an original interpretation or two, our pop-up aims to bring balance back to the genre.
No reservations, just show up at your leisure. Bonus points for dressing the part!

Thursday, August 1st - Tiki Cocktails

Thursday, October 3rd - Fernet About It!

Morgan Belford 4/27/62 – 2/14/19
When I think of owning a business, I often recount the people that we are lucky to come into contact with. Sometimes we are fortunate to have a rapport that goes beyond the front doors.
Morgan Belford was a shining example. He and his wife Christina became friends and regulars shortly after we opened. After all, their relationship budded at the beloved Sambar that preceded us in business.
Thankfully, we passed the approval test and the two became regulars known to have garden dinners or a rendezvous at the bar. Sometimes Morgan would come on his own, always well dressed, well versed, and ready for a negroni.
I fondly remember these visits and will always hold close the shared camaraderie.
Regrettably, Morgan’s life was cut short due to depression. It pains me to know people in our midst are suffering from pains this deep.
Please reach out if you have feelings of darkness. You are not alone even when you believe you are. If you are having thoughts of suicide, please call the National Suicide Hotline. 800-273-8255 (TALK).

We are hopeful for the goodness that a new season brings, but one thing is certain: we’ll be consistently providing opportunities for you and your favorites to swing by for some delicious & fun moments in time. Thank you again for your support, and we look forward to the next time we see you right here on Market Street!
