New Year’s Eve is one of our favorite nights of the year to create something very special for our friends and family. This year, we are featuring two amazing menus of all-new, delicious dishes to ring in the new year! Our very special Chef’s prix fixe menu has an amazing selection of local ingredients from some of our favorite growers and partners, and we are especially proud to present a spectacular all-vegan menu!

Our dinner is $65 per person, and that includes four fantastic courses from either prix fixe menu, plus a glass of bubbly for any guest wanting to toast to 2013.

Call us for reservations at (828) 505.3969, and we will see you on December 31st!
