our philosophy

The cuisine is the most ancient of arts, for Adam was born hungry
— Brillat-Savarin, Phiisiolofiie Du Gout

We are inspired by the attention to detail, pursuit of excellence, and immaculate presentations of the Michelin starred restaurants of France, and are equally inspired by the warmth and fellowship of a lingering dinner party in a private home. At our core, we are passionate about community, and see the meal as a powerful catalyst in bringing people together to share stories and experience community. Some of life’s fondest memories are at the table. In every culture, where hospitality is extended a meal is served. Meals are more than a neutral consumption of food and drink, they are an experience, touching not just our mouth, but nourishing all of the senses. For the palate, our goal is to ensure our meals present an un-folding, inspiring and flawless journey of aroma and taste. For the eyes and ears, our goal is to ensure that every element of the evening, from plate to table, setting to sound is an experience of excellence. Knowing the soul has the longest memory of all the senses our goal is to ensure that the arms of hospitality have been extended and experienced. It is this respect for the power that a great meal has in burning a happy memory into our psyche, that shapes the roomforty philosophy.
