Travail Kitchen & Amusements

The co-captains of Travail are the James Beard Award semi-finalists James Winberg, Bob Gerken, and Mike Brown. Working with a foundation of classic French cooking techniques, we curate a chef-driven, customized dining spectacular focused on engagement and delight.


Travail is moving!

Travail is building a new space from the ground up just across the street. Get the full scoop →


Dining at Travail

The space includes our main Travail dining room, the bar, and our semi-private dining room for special event dinner series. In the main dining room, Travail serves an ever evolving tasting menu of 20+ courses with plates and ingredients changing by season and product availability. Our team of chefs collaborate to develop the menu, and also act as your servers, bringing the kitchen straight to your table. We strive to make great food that is engaging and approachable, so be prepared to get out of your seat and interact with your dinner 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 FAQ page, or head to our Tickets and Events page to make a reservation. For a sneak peek of what might be on the menu, check out our food gallery.

Psst! Pro tip: Sign up for Rush Ticket updates to get discounted seats when a table opens up last minute.


The Wiggly Bar

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.

Family Meal & Semi-Private Dining Room

This space is currently home to our newest Family Meal concept. Each meal consists of 8-10 courses served family style (or shared by your party) at our 16 seat diner bar surrounding the kitchen, giving you a close up view of your chefs’ labor of love. Also available with your dinner is a curated beverage package designed specifically for the current menu.
