Progressive Cuisine

With an Artisanal Approach

The cuisine is shaped by the restaurant’s commitment to ‘fait maison’—a European philosophy of ‘house made’ that defines the culinary team’s dedication to sourcing, preserving, curing and making in-house. It is an ideal embodied in each element of the meal. This unmatched commitment to the freshest local ingredients and authentic personal touches transforms each dish into an inspired product of in-house technique and distinct regional character.
