Not open Thanksgiving Day, closed Friday, the day after.
Open Saturday & Sunday Thanksgiving weekend.
 The X-Mas Eve Dinner is booked ... and the cafe will be closed 
from December 25th until Friday, January 5th.

I'm sure all will have had their fill of turkey, so ...

Saturday night is "Dago Night" with a menu that is classic Italian.

Starting with seafood appetizers. Our house shrimp cocktail with zesty cocktail sauce and saffron battered fish oil fired and served with house tartar sauce.
Featured is tortellini tossed in a light cream sauce spike with garlic and nutmeg with peas and prosciutto. Along with our Lasagne Classico with beef and spinach and, one of my favorite dishes, Maiale de Latte, pork cooked in milk with aromatic herbs and served with rustic garlic wasabi mashers.  

Sunday night we travel down to Oaxaca a little fusion to start with Thai-Mex empanadas with pork and Thai seasoning, and with our house Shrimp Puffs with spicy dipping sauce.
Featured is fresh Swordfish steaks, grilled and hit with spicy mango salsa, also, in the line-up ... The Tamal from Oaxaca with chicken, Mole Rojo and our special masa wrapped in banana leaf and served with Mexican chopped salad. Finishing with spiced, braised pork shoulder with apricot chile sauce.

* We are a small cafe ( 6 tables ) and we are by reservation.*
As it is only me on the stove, reservations are limited nightly. We strongly request you call and reserve your choice with your reservation or before reservation day if booked in advance. Failure to do so tells me you're cancelling the rez. Since each night is a different menu, we don't prepare mass quantities and hope it sells ... food is not rolled over into the next days menus. I shop daily and prep for that night's reservations only. 
For vegetarian/vegan or dietary restrictions, we need advance ( 24 hours ) notice.
Just a helpful insider tip!

If you are using a gift certificate, please say so when making your reservation. 

Gift certificates are valid for 3 months. 
Gift certificates are accepted for regular dinners ... not for special event dinners.

We also offer a 5% cash discount to defray credit card processing fees. This helps keep cafe prices down.

 Our "Torte del Chocolate" . . . beyond decadent!
