It’s officially autumn and the new fall and winter menu is in full swing. The fall and winter menu features hearty, healthful comfort foods to help you warm up during the cooler months.

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the patio picnics all summer. The picnics have ended for the year, and will return next Memorial Day. In the meantime, we’re looking ahead to fall favorites and all the fun and great food of the holiday season!
