You may choose the number of courses you prefer in a set-menu format and we can

work together to customize the menu selections for your event.

We also offer our Seasonal Tasting menu as an option for

a unique experience for your dinner event.

Events in the Gold Room start with a standing reception with tray passed hors d' oeuvres

and your selection of a reception wine.

Menus in this room start at four courses including for each guest:

an appetizer, a pasta, entrée, and dessert.

For each course prior to the entrée, the host may select one dish for all the guests to enjoy. For the entrée, the host may select two dishes for guests to choose from when they sit down for dinner on the evening of the event.

A  customized menu will be printed and presented to each guest at the dinner.

Please advise us in advance of any special dietary needs in order for us to best accommodate them.
