, it will run, initially, four nights a week (Thursday through Sunday). Expect a set, prix fixe menu of five to seven courses. A small selection of wines and beers with also be paired with the dinner.
"We plan to be up and running full time by early April, but will be running a couple of test dinners before then," explains Ruppel. The first test dinner takes place on Saturday, March 3 at 7pm.
The cost of Saturday's dinner will be $50 for a five or six course meal. "I'm going to hit up the market this weekend, see what's up," says Graeme, so expect fresh, local dishes.
