American Seasons

It’s dark in here. That’s one of the reasons couples come in to snuggle up. The other is what amounts to a cross-country tour of American cuisine. We suggest sticking close to home with local seafood and cornmeal polenta, or venturing into the West for hangar steaks and Humboldt Fog goat cheese. Whatever you choose—from here, there, or everywhere—you’ll get thoughtfully prepared, seasonal food that’s somehow also very sexy.
