Archestratus was an eater, a cookbook author, a Sicilian, a poet, a free thinker, a rebel, a comic, quite ancient and a total mystery. We've conjured from him an offbeat meeting place, strongly guided by his inner consciousness. He inspires us daily to keep our food and library simple, harmonious, and of the utmost quality. So come and browse our books on the fact and fiction of food. Sample our housemade Sicilian baked goods, coffee, tea, beer and wine. Lounge in our ample space for classes, readings, screenings, tastings, performances, dinner parties, book clubs, and experiments.
