Family meal at travail

Ever wonder what our chefs are passing around their own table? Our chef founders are returning to their roots and inviting you in for a Travailian family meal. You will be eating some of our favorite dishes with hearty portions, great quality products, and lots of home cooked soul. Each meal consists of four courses served family style (or shared by your party). Dinner will be served at our 16 seat diner bar surrounding the kitchen, giving you a close up view of your chefs’ labor of love. These menus will be carefully crafted each week throughout September and October. 

WINE PACKAGE : Also available with your meal is a curated wine package. Weekly we will feature a unique bottle of wine at a great value and then complement that with another ½ carafe or bottle of something else delicious and tasty. And same as above, these wines are served to be shared.



To dine at Family Meal, guests must purchase a ticketed reservation. Seatings are at 5:30 and 7:30 Wednesday-Saturday. (We will soon be changing to 6:00 and 8:00 seatings at the end of September.)  Walk-ins are welcome if seats do not sell out online. View our calendar to make a reservation.
