The restaurant will be a small venue open for lunch six days per week. We will serve a limited menu made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Menu items will include housemade tomato soup, fresh breads, charcuterie, and a selection of seasonal salads. The restaurant will provide training opportunities for students, and we hope to employ adults with special needs. The restaurant will be located within a working greenhouse, providing a true farm-to-table experience.

We've done our best to estimate our project timeline. However, reality doesn't always cooperate with even the best-laid plans! The timeline below is our best current estimate of when the restaurant will be opened. The restaurant will provide training opportunities for students in all aspects of the culinary arts and service, so our goal will be to open as soon as it is feasible to do so.
