Order To-Go

We are sure of two things. First, very few people have time for a home-cooked meal as often as they would like. Secondly, folks want their take out orders to be prepared with the same care and attention to detail as in the restaurant. We get that and we promise to get it right.

We believe elves are responsible for the new shape and color of our chocolate sandwich cookies, because pastry team has no idea how this happened.

Bar Car

The Bar Car at the Katz Club was the result of one question, what is our kind of bar? It had to be a sleek, cozy, hand crafted, Cary Grant gibson in a wifi world kind of place. A Raymond Chandler mahogany bar top mystery with ice tinking in a highball glass sort of joint. Traditional and familiar, but worlds away from anything that happened before five o'clock.

libation specialties

Hand made cocktails & Champagne

the menu

Freshly shucked oysters, world-class cheese and a selection of small plates

The best ingredients, people with a passion for cocktails and an intimate setting make the bar we have always wanted.
