About Us

We opened our doors on December, 15, 2012 and are located in the small central valley town of Manteca, California, which is conveniently central to Modesto, Stockton and Tracy. Unassuming from the outside, our doors open to a sleek, contemporary environment, inspired by some of the finest restaurants around the world.

Our menu features the absolute best Choice and Prime cuts of beef, organic Chicken, grass fed Lamb, as well as sustainable seafood and the freshest produce available.

Our Culinary Team
