What is "New American" cuisine?
New American cuisine is a style of cooking that emphasizes using locally- or regionally-sourced, seasonal ingredients in innovative and creative ways. The term "New American" emerged in the 1980s and 1990s as a way to describe the evolution of American cuisine beyond traditional European influences that had dominated the country's culinary landscape. It also allows our chefs to explore the more diverse food cultures of America. It is the culinary representation of America and its growing diversity influenced by our own travels and experiences.

We are happy to accommodate guests with dietary restrictions or food allergies. Please inform your server of any restrictions, and we will do our best to guide you to dishes that can be customized to fit your needs. However, please note that we cannot guarantee the complete absence of allergens or cross-contamination as we are not a gluten-free or allergen-free kitchen.

What is your corkage fee?
We welcome our guests to bring their own wine to enjoy with their meal. A corkage fee of $30 for the first bottle, $30 for the second, and $50 for the third 750mL bottle.
