Where do you source your ingredients?
We are passionate about provenance. All of our meat and seafood is GMO-free and from humane sources—like Mary’s Free Range Air-Chilled Chicken, grass-fed beef from Storm Hill Beef Cooperative, Beeler’s Pure Pork ham and bacon, Diestel Turkey Farms turkey, PureFish salmon from the northwest Isles of Scotland and wild-caught Gulf Shrimp. We use only local, cage-free eggs. We're in the produce market every morning at 4am to find the freshest fruits and vegetables available. Our yogurt is organic from Straus Family Creamery and Wallaby, our tofu from Hodo Soy Beanery, and our cheeses are thoughtfully sourced by our award-winning cheesemongers. The olive oil we use is exclusively extra virgin olive oil. We serve locally ground, organic coffee from Oakland Coffee.
Can you accommodate special dietary or allergic needs?
Absolutely! We can offer menus for gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, vegetarian, and more. We will be happy to guide you through our menus and suggest variations to accommodate your dietary needs. We also offer many light menus, menus featuring whole grains, and lighter Mediterranean and Asian dishes. (We do not operate a gluten-free or a nut-fee kitchen, so we cannot guarantee there will not be cross-contamination.)
