Allergies, Food Sensitivities, and Lifestyle Preferences

Note from the Owner:  I want to take the time to let everyone know that we can handle whatever Allergy, Sensitivity, or Preference that your guests may have.  I am personally allergic to MANY things, and my wife and two girls all have their own Allergies and Sensitivities.  Eating out can be a struggle, especially if you are a guest at someone else’s company or house.  That is why I want to make it easy for others.  Many of our items are not Gluten Free, or Vegan, or Low Histamine.  However, just let us know what your requirements are and we will custom make meals for your guests.  We can change recipes, or make one-off meals especially for your guests so they can have a tasty meal just like everyone else at the table.  Please, always feel free to ask your salesperson, or me personally, whenever you have a dietary requirement.  We will do whatever is in our powers to meet that need.

Thank You

-Jason
