Dietary Requirements

It’s our goal to make sure all our guests have a great meal, correctly paired with our great wines.

Whenever possible we try to accommodate various therapeutic diets including diabetic, low fat, low sodium and several others as requested. We also accommodate diets based on food preference and cultural beliefs including vegetarian and kosher.

These quick guidelines show our understanding of what to serve and what to avoid when guests mention their allergies or special dietary requirements.

Milk/Lactose Allergy

Stay away from any foods that have made contact with or include any form of milk (evaporated, powdered, buttermilk, etc.), cheese, butter, sour cream, custard, pudding, or other milk-based product.

Vegan dishes are great if you’ve got a milk or lactose allergy because they don’t contain any animal-based ingredients. Try roasted veggies, a tempeh bowl, parmesan-free pesto pasta, and spring minestrone.

Egg Allergy

Avoid ingredients that made contact with or include eggs in any form (dried, powdered, solids, white, yolk, etc.), including condiments like mayonnaise.

Order vegan for this special dietary requirement, too. Mediterranean baked sweet potatoes, coconut curry, and vegan Philly cheesesteak are all great options.

Shellfish Allergy

Foods that have made contact with or include fish are off limits. Examples include Caesar salad dressing, pizzas with anchovies, and Worcestershire sauce or shellfish like shrimp, crab, crawfish, prawns, krill, and lobster.

Anything with veggies or non-shellfish meats should be fine. Chicken pot pie, pork stickers, and mini-burgers all work.

Peanut / Tree Nut Allergy

Foods that have made contact with or include peanuts or tree nuts like almonds, beechnuts, black walnuts, butternuts, cashews, chestnuts, and other nuts listed by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) should be avoided.

Loaded tacos, chicken, artichoke soup, and turkey sandwich rolls are all delightfully nut-free.

Soybean Allergy

Stay away from foods that have made contact with or include any form of soybeans including edamame, miso, tofu, tempeh, and other foods listed by FARE.

Go with real meat dishes, like chicken empanadas, or fully-vegetarian dishes, like beet risotto and broccoli salads.

Wheat (Gluten) Allergy

Avoid foods that have made contact with or include wheat or gluten. This includes many pastas, breads, crackers, baked goods, cereals, breakfast foods, flour tortillas, beer, and other items listed by the Celiac Disease Foundation.

Anything labeled as gluten-free should be fine, but always ask to be sure. Gluten-free pizzas, grilled chicken, marinated shrimp, and slow-cooked barbecue all fit the bill.


Vegan Diet

Vegans do not eat meat products, but also avoid foods with meat, dairy, eggs, fish, honey, gelatin, or anything that is not plant-based.

Look for vegan-labeled dishes like butternut squash linguine, sweet potato veggie burgers, and chopped kale salads.


Keto Diet

This is a very low carb, moderate protein and high fat diet. It typically contains 70% fat, 20% protein, and only 10% carbs.

Great snacks for a keto diet include pieces of meat, cheese, olives, boiled eggs, nuts, raw veggies, and dark chocolate.


Vegetarian Diet

Vegetarians do not eat any meat products.

Try caprese salads, eggplant lasagna, portobello mushroom burgers, and veggie appetizer platters.

Kosher Diet

Keeping kosher is a religious observance that means you avoid foods with pork, some poultry, rabbit, some seafood, cheeseburgers, most ice cream, some fruits, and some yogurts.

Anything marked kosher is fine, but to make sure that any dish is made in a kosher-friendly kitchen be sure to ask. Dishes like chicken kabob sandwiches, tuna salad, and meat or cheese lasagna usually qualify.

Paleo Diet

The paleo diet avoids processed foods and foods with dairy, cereal grains, grain-like seeds, legumes (beans and peas), peanuts, starchy vegetables, salty foods, fatty cuts of meat, sugar, and fruit juices.

What to Order: Look for dishes without processed foods like hunter’s stew, shepherd’s pie, or beef and vegetable kabobs.
