To Our Friends, 

We have changed over our dining room into a to-go/fresh market format.  We simply have to pivot if our restaurant is going to make it through COVID-19.  Gift cards can be used at the market, as well as on carry-out soups, sandwiches, coffee drinks, etc. We appreciate your patience and continual support, and we look forward to more cozy concerts, buzzing happy hours, and jazz brunches on the other side of this pandemic.

Stay safe, and we'll see you soon.
Em & The Norwegian Team

Hours of Operation: 9 am to 7 pm Thursday-Sunday 9am-2pm
Closed Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Most Holidays.
