About Us

Authentic Lebanese Menu Selections


Staying true to his Lebanese roots, co-owner Kal Habr handmakes all Lebanese menu offerings daily. 

Seasonal Farm to Table


 Farm to table, farm to fork, locally sourced ... all of those terms mean one thing: Sit down and know you're eating food from the area. It's local, fresh goodness that you can trust. 

Focus on Fine Wine Selections


Co-owner Kal Habr carefully tastes and selects each wine on our wine menu. Weekly wine tastings ensure he is staying up to date on all things wine to make sure the menu offerings are top notch.
