For this month's MAY DAY din dins, we'll be stringing flowers from our ceiling and May pole ribbons from our columns.  

We also wanted to do something special for moms, as May is the month of Mothers' Day. The mothers in my family are always given baskets of flowers on Mothers' Day, and I happen to know two ladies who make the most stunning baskets and arrangements I've seen.

Florist Hilary Horvath will be arranging flowers in the hand-women baskets of Modern Artifact's Keia Booker.  Hilary is also offering these May Day-inspired flower crowns.

We can have these waiting at the table for your mom on Mothers' Day brunch or at the MAY DAY din dins-- just make the purchase with your rezzo: 

flower baskets, $40 plus flowers (baskets pictured on bottom) 
vase shape basket, with arranged flowers 
cup shape basket, with potted flowers

Jeu de Vie! by courtney sproule

For the next month, we offer you evenings with that certain jeu de vivre.  Artists Joey Edwards and Alisha Sullivan are dressing our tables and walls in les jeux—games—of life.  They are games without rules or mandate—play as you wish or don’t play at all. 
Our menu’s joie de vivre stems from the emergence of spring.  The familiar foods of winter will be leavened with the curious green and purple shoots and tendrils just now peaking their way through the soil.  As the month progresses, we’ll have more and more of these spring things to play with:

liver mousse on pain d’épices with corn shoot & pastis candied kumquat

smoked mussels in green garlic velouté with strawberry nettle pesto

fern en meurette: fiddlehead, yellowfeet mushroom, lardon & spring onion with poached egg
      

peas & roe risotto

leg of lamb with sorrel salsa verde and turnip ricotta gratin

white balsamic dressed cresses with brandied cherry

rhubarb lily consommé with sheep’s cheese ice cream and hazelnut baby lemon balm tuile

 
The seven course menu is $85 plus gratuity, inclusive of wine pairings.
We are hosting the jeu de vivre din din :
 
Friday & Saturday March 14th & 15th
Friday & Saturday March 21st & 22nd
 
Each evening begins at 7:30pm.
