The storm before the calm.


We open on Friday to the public but are having three nights of private parties starting Tuesday so as you can see we have a lot of finishing up to do. There’s already a great buzz in the air with all the amazing art being hung and everyone running around buffing dishes.








We are so excited to serve you and hope you will come in soon.

The wood floor.





We put the wood floor in this weekend and it looks incredible. This is just a teaser. Wait until you see it all oiled up. You may want to eat off it. Okay maybe not but you will want to at least walk on it.

And no..we don’t think these guys are too young to start learning a good work ethic.
