  • As a service team, we are limiting our interactions with guests particularly in way of conversation. To remedy this, we will be providing digital content to bridge this gap in communication. We have printed menus with linked content to our in depth guest and employee COVID protocols, as well as detailed food and drink menus to accompany the meal.

  • For water and bottled wine service we will bring and pour the first glass. We will then place the bottle on the table and have the guest self serve from then on.
