A Celebration of the New Year

As 2015 comes to a close, we’d like to thank each of you for your friendship and support throughout the year, our best yet. We truly have much to be thankful for, and reflect upon as this year ends and 2016 begins. As is tradition, we are throwing a special dinner on New Year’s Eve and we would love for you to come ring in the new year with us. This year’s menu is scaled back a bit from years past, to a four-course, to at once make it more approachable and also to lighten it up a bit. We’re mighty proud of it and promise a good time!

We will open for lunch with our regular lunch menu at 10 a.m. on New Year’s Eve and close at 3:30. Dinner service begins promptly at 5 p.m. with the special menu. The regular menu will not be available for dinner. For reservations call 773-275-5725

Please join us to celebrate the end of a successful year.
