when it’s gone, it’s gone.

This exclusive Nocino release is a one night-only event where we tap the stash until the bottles run clear. We look forward to continue making this an annual tradition on the night before Thanksgiving!

What is Apertivo? Traditionally in Italy, Apertivo means to "open" the palette in preparation for dinner. We'll be embracing this tradition to make way for many more dinners to come!

What is Nocino? A nutty, slightly bitter walnut liquor meant to be enjoyed as an after-dinner sipper. Following the summer solstice and shortest night of the year comes St. John the Baptist's Day on June 24th. In Italian folklore this day invites barefoot virgins to collect the soft, green, dew-laden walnuts intended to be submersed into alcohol and aged to perfection, just in time for the holidays!

Full Dinner Service will carry on as normal (reservations welcome). See you at the table!

Later Event: December 31
