Our chefs and staff have been busy working on something that is sure to brighten your day – lunch! That glorious midday meal, where you can take a timeout from life and endless email and enjoy good food. To help us get ready for lunch service, starting today through Friday, April 22 we are offering friends and family preview lunches at a discount of 25% off when you dine this week! The discount is in recognition that we’ll be fine tuning service, so there may be some delays. You’ll be helping us get in the swing of things before we kick off officially next Monday, April 25.

What’s on the menu?

Salads include a sumptuous Caesar, a crisp green, an all-new chop and a vegan grain. Up the heartiness factor by adding grilled steak, fried chicken thigh, scampi shrimp, bacon or avocado.

For Salad’s friend, Soup, we’re offering our wildly popular French onion soup along with a vegan lentil garnished with harissa pumpkin seeds and Moroccan olive oil.

Sandwiches include our half-pound burger, BLAT, fried chicken sandwich, and our award-winning fish & chips. We’ll also have several new sandwiches, such as our Farmer’s Sandwich (Toasted 7 Grain Bread, horseradish aioli, house roasted turkey breast, thick cut bacon, fried egg, Havarti cheese, crisp lettuce), and a rotating selection of flatbreads.

Snacks feature our broccoli stem fritters, ham & gruyere croquettes, and house potato chips and horseradish aioli.

On the beverage front, in addition to our regular offerings, we now have cold brew, a rotating selection of locally sourced iced teas, SFW cocktails, and artisan sodas — plus our cider and beer manager has put together a list of $5 bottles from the bottle shop.

Keep an eye on our menus page in the coming week for more details.
