Menus for Every Occasion
We delight in transforming ingredients into mouth-watering bites. Many of our dishes began years ago when we traveled abroad, ate at a roadside dive or foraged an edible flower. New flavors and experiences inspire our daily work and fuel our creativity. Our Indiana home provides us with year-round delights that keep our menus grounded and accessible. We strive to make interesting food that is not intimidating. We believe that whole ingredients and simple preparation can live in harmony with extravagant colors, flavors and textures.
