We are so honored to host the Julia Child 100th Birthday Celebration "Good Time" Dinner tomorrow evening! Chef Ris has prepared a delicious menu featuring a raw bar from Clyde's Restaurant Group, Jamison Lamb, Toigo Orchard peaches and Boisset Family Estates Wines. We will be closed for a la carte dining for this occasion, but hope that you will join us sometime during Restaurant Week to enjoy "Julia-centric" menus.
