Our Menu & Concept

We believe life is more sweet when lived genuinely, simply, humbly. We embrace the natural beauty of this world by serving food, wine and conversation that are unadorned and full of life. The Pacific Northwest is our home and the seasons are our stories.
We can’t wait to share them with you.

The ingredients we utilize and the wines we serve come from small producers who employee respectful farming methods. The wines are made without manipulation, just as the dishes we create seek to highlight, rather than overpower their ingredients.

The forest of Arden in Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ was a retreat from the pomp and circumstance of the court. It was a haven for those who wished to live off the land and enjoy a simpler life. We invite you to step out of the city and join us in a celebration of nature’s bounty.

Due to the highly seasonal nature of our menu, it changes almost every day. Guests can always enjoy our 4-course chef’s prix fixe menu ($64) or order a la carte. Coursed wine pairings are offered for the prix fixe ($42) a long with an extensive selection of wines by the glass and house cocktails.

*$25 Corkage fee per 750 mL / limit 2 bottles per party.
