    At The Heart Of Our Menu

    “Thea is Greek for "aunt".

     This restaurant is dedicated to the care and love
     of my mother and my Thea. In their tradition, cooking
     is my passion. I enjoy making people happy with food.
    That's me. That's what I do.”
    – Chef AnnMarie Nelms

    "Fresh Ingredients Always Win"

    Pumpkins, beets, kale and more start from the seeds planted and grown at the family farm, and acquired from other local farmers. Chef AnnMarie transforms these homegrown ingredients into a menu of creative recipes that will delight your palate.
