Chef's Notes

With our daily-changing menu, we are allowed the distinct contentment of letting ingredients direct the selections of each evening. It always seemed a little backward to create a dish and then source for ingredients. What if you can't get your main ingredient? Rhubarb is unavailable and you have rhubarb on the menu? We, by design, are not stuck trying to source under-ripe, substandard rhubarb and fit it into a "planned menu" just because. We get to create something every afternoon, just hours from serving it-all with what nature provides us.
