Prix Fixe Dining at Cadre

Until we are able to be at 100% capacity, we will be offering a weekly prix fixe dinner menu composed of seasonal ingredients.

The prix fixe menu experience will begin with an amuse bouche, then proceed with guests' choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert.

The menu will be changed weekly based on the freshest ingredients of the season. Every Thursday, we will post the menu for the following week.

Sunday Carry-Out Dinner

We called an audible this week for our Destination dinners. We're taking a detour to Titletown, USA for a tailgate takeout and chicken wing challenge with our three favorite Chefs: Ed Chwae, Marco Gonzalez, and Evan Dannells.

This meal is à la carte so order as much as you want. Pick up will be on Sunday (9/27) from 3-7pm. Kick-off against the New Orleans Saints is at 7:20. DON'T BE LATE.

Sunday Carry-Out Dinner

Part of what we like to do at Cadre is educate. Mostly ourselves, but also any curious diners. Choosing Russia as our destination was surprisingly educational. Chef Evan had fun learning about Russian cuisine and playing with all the beautiful colors of this vibrant food.

This meal is à la carte so order as much as you want. Pick up will be on Sunday the 4th.
