OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY
local | seasonal | delicious
We love food. Most of all, we love food that is good for you: simple, tasty foods prepared from scratch with fresh, sustainably-sourced and better-for-you ingredients, providing balanced nourishment. We provide our chefs with components that not only taste great, but are as clean as possible. We devote a lot of time and effort into sourcing and procuring the products we use in our kitchens, which also means finding the right partners. Our ingredients come from trusted suppliers, farms, and manufacturers that use healthy, sustainable practices. And, rest assured, we never sacrifice quality for cost.
