suis generis

what is suis generis?  it means from nothing - or one of a kind.  it is what we do every week.  we have created new and unique menus each week since march of 2012.  people say this is crazy.  it may be.  however, we are energized by creativity - by ingredients & concepts.  we cook because we love food, and we have a passion for experimentation.  we call it food evolution.

what is food evolution?  amazing food starts with excellent ingredients.  we call our approach "food evolution" because our menu evolves weekly as new fresh ingredients arrive.  we also try to keep our prices reasonable because we are first and foremost a restaurant for the residents of bywater. while our food costs are high, we make-up the difference with very little spoilage.  we buy food in small increments, create unusual menus & use seasonal items to create the next round of dishes... this is food evolution.  by this process, we bring you a constantly changing menu based on fresh local and exotic imported ingredients.  

join us on this adventure in food & drink.  we have no idea what we will be cooking next week, and we love it that way!                                                                                               

                                        hope to see you soon....
