Our dining

Harbinger is a vegetable-focused small plates concept featuring flavors inspired by self-directed trips our Chef has taken through southeast Asia and beyond. Our mission is to tell the tale of the place we call home highlighting provisions provided by the bountiful land and the hard-working hands of those who know how to nurture it.

The Menu

We are so excited to welcome guests back into our space for dine-in. Listed here is our a la carte menu where you can build your own dining experience. 5-course Chef's Tasting menus are offered daily as long as supplies last.
Our seasonally focused menu features products carefully sourced from local farmers and farmers markets. The relationship between restaurant and purveyor is at the core of what we do and how we operate. Our ever-changing menu features ala carte snacks and vegetable focused small plates as well as 5 course Chef’s Tasting experience. Our menu changes frequently based on the seasons and availability of fresh products.
