Dig into a meal you won’t find anywhere else
Beginning August 1
Enjoy a menu that celebrates local and seasonal ingredients served at the peak of freshness. This meal will not only stimulate your appetite but support local harvest and community farms. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to City Green, a non-profit organization in Clifton, NJ that is dedicated to facilitating the establishment of urban farms and gardens in northern New Jersey’s cities to create increased access to healthy, local food while cultivating education in food systems, nutrition, and the environment.
