Beyond International Cuisine

Over the last 30 years, Chef Susan Spicer has crafted a global menu that brings traditional favorites to a new level. Chef’s menu is inspired by dishes from Spain, Italy and France balanced with the flavors of the Mediterranean, India, and the Orient. Along with Chef de Cuisine, Christy Engeran, Chef Spicer continues to develop new flavors from the ever-growing selection of local produce.  Our menu changes daily, and we continuously pull from local and regional farms to bring the best flavors and varieties to your plate. View a selection of sample and recent menus below.
