The co-captains of this pirate ship are the James Beard Award semi-finalists James Winberg, Bob Gerken, and Mike Brown. The space includes our main Travail dining room, the bar, and our semi-private dining room. Keep scrolling to learn more about what to expect from each and the best way to eat!
Dining at travail
Travail serves an ever evolving tasting menu of 20+ courses with plates and ingredients changing by season and product availability. Our team of chefs are also your servers, and everyone takes part in developing the menu. We have an open kitchen, so you'll get a good look at the chefs hard at work plating and preparing each course. We try to make great food in a fun environment, so be prepared to get out of your seat and interact with your food in a whole new way.
To dine at Travail, guests must purchase a ticketed reservation. Seatings are at 5:00 and 8:00 Wednesday-Saturday. (Very rarely do we have walk-ins available.) To learn more about what your ticket includes, visit the TICKETS page, or view our calendar to make a reservation. For a sneak peek of what might be on the menu, check out our food gallery.

No reservations are needed for a seat at Travail's "wiggly bar". We offer an a perpetually evolving a la carte small bite menu with micro plate options. The chefs behind our bar serve some serious craft cocktails along with beer, wine, and just about anything your heart desires. Pop in early before your dinner reservations or stay to make this the main event.
