Meet the Chef:

If you've joined us at the Bistro before, then you know Chef Jen. She is the talent behind the menu and the reason the food on your plate is so delicious!

A little bit about Jen: she was a military baby, born all the way in Okinawa, Japan. She eventually made her way to Texas, and says she'll never leave - and for that, we are eternally grateful!

Her favorite part about cooking is the chance to be creative and use the freshest ingredients available straight from the garden. And it really shows through our menu!

Chef Jen has so many must-have products, but her favorites to cook with are the Texas Hill Country Olive Co Pear Balsamic Vinegar, Terra Verde Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Harissa Infused Olive Oil

Wednesday is Wine Wednesday!

Wednesdays = $7 glasses of wine and $14 sangria pitchers
