ENTREES ($44, serves 4)


Garlicky Chicken Thighs with Fried Rice and Baby Bok Choy
For this entree, we start by pan frying bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs until they’re crispy and golden brown. We then finish the chicken with an umami-rich sauce of garlic, lime juice, scallions, and soy sauce. Our vegetable fried rice and baby bok choy finish the entree.

A plant-based substitute is available for the chicken; just let us know! 


Maryland-Style Crab Cakes with Rustic Panzanella Salad (DF) 

You’ll swear you’re at an East coast seafood shack when you bite into our savory Maryland-style crab cakes, served with our Old Bay aioli (on the side). We pair the crab cakes with our rustic panzanella salad featuring peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, basil, house-made croutons, and scratch balsamic vinaigrette.


Savory Eggplant or Chicken Parmesan
For this classic Italian favorite, we layer and then bake breaded eggplant or chicken breast with our scratch-made marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. The entree is served with herbed pasta.

We can switch up the noodles to keep it GF upon request.
