Family Meal at Travail

The Family Meal concept is taking over the second kitchen in our building, formerly known as the Rookery/Spotlight and is hosted in our semi-private dining room. The menu features some of our favorite dishes with hearty portions and lots of soul. Some of the original Travailians feel like this is a throw back to our old days. Each meal consists of 8-10 courses served family style (or shared by your party). The menu changes every few weeks and highlights seasonal products, fan favorites, and our chef's most recent inspirations. Dinner is served at our 16 seat diner bar surrounding the kitchen, giving you that classic Travailian close up view of the chefs’ labor of love. 

BEVERAGE PACKAGE : Also available with your meal is a curated beverage package featuring wine, beer, craft cocktails, or housemade juices. Each beverage pairing is designed to complement the specific menu currently being served.

AT THE BAR: Travail's current bar menu will most often be a reflection of what's served at Family Meal with a few staples added in like a burger or tacos.
