The short list of items above are dishes that have enjoyed long popularity with our diners—some have been in our repertoire since we opened! But we’re also happy to provide banquet pricing for dishes on our current a la carte menu, or to work with you to create a menu specific to the farm season (near and dear to our hearts) or to your culinary tastes.

Please note: though we’ve been fortunate that working with local farm partners has shielded us from some of the wild activity in national markets, current market situations can still impact both availability of product and the price of that product. While we will do our best to provide an accurate price for your event when the menu is arranged, pricing may change due to circumstances beyond our control.

Please also note: the banquet menu is available only for groups of 20 people or more, and a complete order for all guests must be given a minimum of 5 days in advance. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions or allergies within your group at least 24 hours prior to arrival. 

Prices do not include gratuity and Pennsylvania sales tax of 6%.
