Sunday Suppers started nine years ago in our home. A few friends gathered at our apartment. We cooked and dined and made a toast. From there our dinners have evolved and we have grown into a beautiful new space, our community has expanded beyond our expectations. The concept however centers on simplicity and a love of food.Through shared meals and the act of cooking communally we celebrate the traditions of food and gathering. The food is seasonally focused and market fresh.
Sobremesa is our new series of global dinners. To join us as a host or attendee you can see more here (Sobremesa page) and here (tickets page).
