Calitnamese Spring Rolls Served with Dipping Sauces from the Restless Palate Menu

A guaranteed favorite – the new Restless Palate Menu and refreshing craft cocktails created by Cocktail Program Director, Lindsey Eshleman. With libations like the Palate Therapy made with Lavender Infused Absolut, Wildflower Honey Lemonade and the Castroville Collins made with Chamomile Infused Beefeater Gin, Lemon, Honey, Soda, Cynar, this craft cocktail menu is anything but ordinary. And pair that cocktail with some Mongolian Style Pork Belly Sliders (or any of the other delicious menu items) and I’m guessing you’ll be coming back for more.
