For January through March while Watkins is sleepy, we are trying something new!-

In lieu of regular hours, we will offer select theme nights with a set 3 course menu on specific dates

(just like we did years ago at Nickel's!). 

We will let our creativity run wild, and all you will have to do is make a reservation for the day (days) you'd like to join us. The best part? Every theme day will be just $30 per person for food -- and that includes all 3 courses. 

It will be an amazing experience. Every time. 

Theme NightS

2/2: Asian Fusion (our favorite food to eat)
2/9: Deep South (upscale dining moves south) (1/19 make up day)
2/15 & 2/16: Valentine's Day Weekend (for lovers!)
3/2: Vegan & Vegetarian (for veggie lovers!)
3/16: Fancy BBQ (for meat lovers!)
