The 12 Courses

There will be different meals to choose from and each will offer a complete and comprehensive dinner. The dishes prepared as part of the meal have been expertly chosen to complement each other so that you have a tasteful experience throughout. Typically, the 12+ course chef's tasting menu consists of hors-d'oeuvres, amuse-bouche, soup, appetizer, salad, fish, main course, palate cleaner, second main course, cheese course, dessert, and end of the meal dessert. You'll be able to choose your meal ahead of time when you make your reservations. If you're uncertain, speak with the staff or chef for recommendations or details about what will be included in each course.

The Perfect Amount

You might be concerned that a 12-course meal will consist of too much food and that over-eating will be the only way to try everything. Let your worries be at rest because each course will be the perfect size to allow you to enjoy it fully without getting stuffed. The portions will be small to ensure that everyone leaves satisfied and not bloated or with indigestion. A 12+ course chef's tasting menu is designed to let you try new menu items, not to overfeed you.

Attentive and Trained Staff

You can expect to be served by professional staff that have all undertaken extensive training in food information and serving. They will be able to answer any questions you might have, including recommendations. They will likely use open-hand serving which means refraining from reaching over guests while placing dishes on the table. If you have an allergy, please let them know so that they can help keep you safe, but be aware that accommodations cannot be made for dietary restrictions. Additionally, you can expect each course to be served in a timely yet relaxed manner so you can fully taste and enjoy each one before moving on to the next.
