Progressive New England cuisine.
The backbone of our cuisine is the nature of New England - the wild as well as the cultivated. We care for the traditions, yet strive to renew. We are ambitious, thorough, playful and ever exploring. Our cuisine is regional, and yet we are inspired by the whole world. We follow the rhythm of the seasons. During growing season we work intensively with nature's changing supply, preserving as much as possible in the process. This permits us to serve up a tiny bit of them on our plates all year round. We constantly explore and develop our base of ingredients and techniques. We cultivate our own herbs, and collaborate closely with our farmer friends.
We grow, harvest, preserve, serve, and love, New England.
Every so often we like to do things a bit differently and take a side step from our regular menus. We draw inspiration from a variety of muses. Sometimes a country, a point in history, books, movies, elements of nature, or iconic restaurants. We research and read, and then boil it down to one menu, in a tasting format, and present it for one night… then it’s gone… and we’re on to the next idea. Join us for one of these special inspired nights and see where it takes us.
