Memorial Day Feast

Thursday, 26 May 2016 - Monday, 30 May 2016

It's time again to celebrate the ones who went away from us in order to protect us. Memorial Day Weekend, the official harbinger of summer, should feel like it goes on forever. To that end, don't fret in the kitchen this year—order up your feast from us and get outside into the backyard, up...

A Taste for Thai

Thursday, 19 May 2016 - Sunday, 22 May 2016

The origins of Thai cuisine can be traced back to China, with later influences—thanks to Spice Route trade—from India and the Middle East. Weave in neighborly savors from Malaysia, Burma, Cambodia and Laos, and you have the inimitable taste of Thailand: a complex interplay of sweet, sour,...

We're always all about olive oil, but this week more than ever. In honor of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil Festival, we've put together a menu highlighting this golden-green elixir. Good olive oil speaks for itself (we've been known to take a tablespoon or two just to taste what it has to say), but...

It's Cinco de Mayo, a celebration of Mexico's unexpected triumph over outnumbering French forces at the Battle of Puebla* in 1862—and an excuse for us to cook up some of the Mexican classics we love any day. Get the fiesta—and your palate—fired up with Ancho Citrus Chicken Skewers, Classic...

Italian Farmhouse Feast

Thursday, 28 April 2016 - Sunday, 01 May 2016

You've been driving your sporty little Fiat on a perilous, winding road cut into the edge of the brushy Tuscan hills, hands glued tight to the steering wheel. Finally, near the top, you take a sharp turn onto a narrow dirt road that seems to plunge at 90 degrees into nothingness—down, down....

Passover 2016

Thursday, 21 April 2016 - Sunday, 24 April 2016

Spring in Full Swing

Thursday, 07 April 2016 - Sunday, 10 April 2016

Yes, spring is truly here, and the vegetables know it best. Our menu (with a nod to Hellenic cuisine) is a celebration of spring's green harbingers: new zucchini (with creamy Greek Manouri cheese) fresh, crisp asparagus (with bacon, shallots and lemon), and snap peas with fennel and arugula...

Far East Eats

Thursday, 31 March 2016 - Sunday, 03 April 2016

Our Asian-inspired menu is all about balance. For tender pork ribs and duck breast? A sweet, aromatic orange-lemon glaze balanced with earthy garlic, cumin, thyme and bay. Fluffy edamame quinoa with green onion and cilantro, enlived by an interplay of sweet, sour and savory flavors. Egg noodles...

Happy Easter!

Wednesday, 23 March 2016 - Saturday, 26 March 2016

Easter is about renewal. Let's celebrate our own resilient spirits, the lighter, brighter, longer days, the boon of recent rains, the quickening soil—and, of course, the hopping bunnies and fluffy chicks! Our menu gets it right with sumptuous foods enlivened by the fresh flavors of spring....

Happy Persian New Year!

Friday, 18 March 2016 - Monday, 21 March 2016

March 20th is Nowriz ("New Day"), the Iranian new year—a 3,000-year-old celebration of the spring equinox shared by 300 million people throughout Southeast Europe, the Middle East and into Central Asia.  In the time leading up to Nowruz, which honors the rebirth of nature, lies the...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's St. Paddy's Day, the day of Saint Pádraig, time to honor the Emerald Isle, the wondrous country of Ireland. In celebration, we're opening a pop-up Irish pub of sorts (minus the suds), offering up some tasty, homey classics of Irish cuisine. We won't be foisting black pudding on you, but...

Kissed by Spring

Thursday, 10 March 2016 - Sunday, 13 March 2016

A Tasty Stay in India

Thursday, 03 March 2016 - Sunday, 06 March 2016

We had so much delicious fun in India last week, we've decided to go there again—via our taste buds, of course. We've added new items we love: carrot & onion fritters, tender tandoori chicken skewers, rice & lentil kchichri, and more. A layover in India? We'll take it!
