Due to this type of dinner we cannot effectively deviate from the menu as written. If you have special dietary needs, the restaurant will do the best they can to accommodate them but you must let us know in advance.

We will do our very best to seat folks together. We will contact everyone a few days prior to the event to learn who wants to sit with whom. You are welcome to add it in the notes of your order as well. Thank you for understanding.
