The Gallery

Located on the first floor of the restaurant, features one large table in the center of the room, and it faces a sound proof wall of windows looking directly into our open-style kitchen. We consider it semi-private because even though your guests will be the only ones dining in the space, it is separated from the rest of the restaurant by a door-less entrance.
