Temporary Measures for Public Health

Attention Guests

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Lawrence-Douglas County health department has mandated that we only be open for carry-out orders until further notice.  It also mandated that all in-house service stop, so we will only be conducting curbside service. 

Temporary carry-out hours: Call anytime after 12pm for pickup between 4pm-8pm Tuesday-Sunday (Brunch will not be available).

We will be closed on Mondays.

Best practice to place an order:


Easter Menu

Visit our website to look at our menu, check this front page for the most up to date version. We may have to make changes as things develop. At the moment, we are only serving our Carry Out menu, also available on the menus page.

Call in your order – 785-312-9057

Pay over the phone and let us know what vehicle you are in for curbside drop-off. We’ll keep an eye out for you at the appointed time.

Thank you for your support!

Food & Wine Pairing Menu

Join us any Thursday through Saturday from 5-9pm this month to try our sommelier Bruce’s latest vision for exquisite pairing of wine with food. Try all three courses – enough for a meal for one person – or share with a friend for a more appetizer-like experience. Or, if you’d like, try just the parts of the menu you’d like – it’s totally customizable!

The menu focuses on some our local purveyors and the wine theme is a rehash of the Judgment of Paris – the now famous 1976 blind tasting in which California wines defeated French wines to take the top-rated spots decided by a panel of French judges.
