Food Dance is always a good option if you want fresh, seasonal food with good service. I recently started placing take out orders which is a convenient option after a busy work day. They have a great brunch too!

We offer private dining space for celebrations or larger groups as well as catering and delivery. We host cooking classes and special dinners throughout the year - aimed to introduce guests to new elements of the culinary and agricultural worlds.
