5-6 pm gather around the chef's table and be treated to outstanding appetizers for only $10. It was a wonderful experience watching the chefs create unique and scrumptious appetizers for us to enjoy. We ordered our favorite drink there, a french martini. Highly recommend!!

We were the only ones at our seating and were treated to an amazing nine-course meal with wine pairings. It was incredible watching Chef Cameron create each course, and he did a great job of explaining the ingredients (mostly from the garden at The Essex),...More
