Our Cuisine & Philosophy
Simple. Fresh. Local. Hand-crafted. Chives is inspired by comfort foods and the seasons. We believe that our guests should enjoy exceptional food and this is why our menu preparations are continuously evolving. From our house-made breads to our ice creams, scratch cooking is how we do it. At Chives, creativity begins with the ingredients.
We use the freshest and highest quality ingredients available from our trusted purveyors. Our relationships with the most respected fish purveyors, farmers and food artisans in our local area and around the country, ensure that we receive the finest selection of ingredients – from fish and shellfish, to herbs and vegetables, and cheeses – something new arrives every day. For that reason, last minute changes to your menu may occur based on seasonality and product availability, but similar ingredients will be substituted and you will be informed at the soonest moment possible.
We are happy to assist you in selecting a menu highlighting your favorite ingredients or preparations in keeping with seasonal availability and your event budget. Several menu formats are offered (see the following pages)ranging from a selection of canapés, lunches or dinners, and a customized Chef’s Tasting.
Chives offers vegetarian options for all courses. We are always happy to accommodate dietary restrictions and ask that you inform us in advance so that we may offer appropriate substitutions.
