Because of our intimate size, we are able to offer only one menu selection per meal. Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advance notice. If there are multiple groups booked at the Humanities Center, we allow the group that booked first to choose the day's menu. Please inquire at the time of booking whether your group is the first to book.
