Local fresh cuisine

for everyone

Persephone serves a seasonally changing farm to table menu with influences ranging from Italian to Middle Eastern.  All of the dishes are based upon the locally available products and produce. Chef Cori has an unwavering commitment to only using the freshest and highest quality ingredients available, if it is not available from a local farmer anymore then it is time to change the menu! This makes the food taste better, but also helps to promote a sustainable food culture!
