March 2019 Update
The shortest month of the year has flown by and we welcome March with open arms and anticipate some warmer weather. Spring begins with the vernal equinox on March 20 at 5:58 p.m. This marks the astronomical first day of Spring on the same day as the March Full Worm Moon, also a supermoon. Meteorologically, the official first day of Spring is March 1. It is an exciting time of the year as the earth comes alive. The memory of the garden at the center of my everyday life will soon be a reality. We eagerly wait for the ides of March to plant peas, lettuces, radishes, spinach and fava beans outdoors. For now, we have planted peas, Swiss chard, beets, greens, carrots and more in the hoop house and started cabbages, broccoli, kale, lettuces, peppers, leeks, onions and more in the greenhouse.
Winter may still be around and yet, dining at the restaurant will warm you as you enjoy the ambience, savor the flavors of the food and feel the warmth of the conservatory. A tranquil setting, inspired by nature, the venue presents a breathtaking view and natural setting overlooking the Potomac River. Before we know it, the tent and patio will be available for seating and the conservatory doors will be open to enjoy the wonderful warm breeze. When the clocks change early morning on Sunday, March 10 - I wait with anticipation for the much longer days.
We invite you to experience an unforgettable dining experience celebrating local, organic, seasonal ingredients. Our culinary journey will relax your mind, surround you with warmth and excite your palate. Join us for a celebration of the connection between kitchen and earth.
Remember to eat organic, Certified Naturally Grown, "ecoganic" and support your local farmers and entrepreneurs.
Enjoy the Spring,
