Every Season in New England brings with it a new perspective. Our mindset changes, our clothes change, light changes and our food inevitably follows suit.
SPRING Spring is tip toeing its way through our back yards and farmers markets. Making sure not to disturb our cool mornings and brisk walks all too soon. No, Spring is a gift of patience. A season that encourages us to wait… and then wait just a bit more. It teases us with the delicate buds slowly forming on our favorite cherry trees. Evokes a smile when the striking blue petal of a crocus catches our eye. It makes us think of the beauty that is coming. It gives us pause, no rushing here, enjoy the moment.

As we take our cue from this special season, let patience be our guide. Remembering fondly the fantastic asparagus from Four Town Farm, and knowing it will find its way to our back door soon. Keep your sweaters next to your short drawer and share a smile with each new bud you see.

Always evolving as local produce becomes available, our Spring menu awaits your arrival.
