We aim to connect diners to the origins of their food and wine by celebrating the growers and vintners with our alternative wining and dining experiences.
Rather than sourcing ingredients for our kitchen we bring the kitchen to the source rebuilt at exclusive locations each morning and disappearing each night. These are momentary and joyful experiences of what binds us; a meal.
