These two dining rooms create different moods, both very appetizing. The warm grey dining room on the left has a contemporary feel, with a nod to art deco. The elegant upholstered chairs harken back to the opulent movie sets of the 20’s and 30’s. The lighting, artwork and vases keep the room contemporary.

The dining room on the right, creates the warmth of an elegant hunting lodge dining hall with leather seating, oversized fireplace and rough-hewn dining table that accommodates ten. The leaded glass globe lighting casts a warm and flattering glow on all the guests.
