SKILLETS dinners are price fixed bistro inspired menus that you see prepared in front of you while the chef narrates the step by step procedures. All ingredients are fresh, organic, natural and seasonal. Recipes are great for everyday dinners that are suitable for company, too! Most price fixed menus include a starter, entree, cheese coarse or salad, and dessert.

Be sure to arrive in time to select your wine from our shelves to go along with your dinner. Chef suggestions are available.  You may cork and take home any wine left in the bottle.  Most recipes are found in our online cookbook.
