A Few Frequently Asked Questions & Their Answers

Do you take credit cards?

Yes! Every major type is accepted at Journeyman, though you’re still welcome to pay in cash.

Do you have gift certificates?

Yes! Our gift certificates can be purchased in person or over the phone (we’ll mail you the certificate). You can give a gift certificate with a dollar amount or by the experience you’d like your recipient to have (3, 5, or 7 courses, with or without wine pairings).

Can I reserve seats overlooking the kitchen?

Yes! We have a few tables that can see into the kitchen well, and we also have a counter overlooking the kitchen, the seating for which is generally first come, first serve (though you can request it when you make a reservation).

Do you host private parties?/Do you cater private events?

We do host parties, though we do not cater off-premises. Please email Meg to inquire about scheduling, pricing, and menu, or to see photos of past private events.

Are you open on Christmas Eve/Christmas? New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day? Valentine’s Day?

We will be open Christmas Eve for a small, intimate meal. Email us for a reservation. We will be open on Valentine’s Day as well, serving a special menu. More details will be posted closer to the date.

We will not be open for Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day.

Do you have a dress code?

No. We are a low-key restaurant, and people have been equally comfortable in shorts and t-shirts as they have been in formal wear.

Do you serve vegan meals?

Not with any regularity. We do our absolute best to accommodate dietary restrictions whenever possible, and offer full vegetarian meals every night of the week, but we have found that offering a vegan menu requires completely different sets of ingredients and mises en place, for which we have little storage space on a daily basis. On special occasions (two so far) we have offered vegan meals, and we will do so again in the spring, when new veggies start flooding the markets again. Please watch our events page for announcements about vegan menu nights.

Do you have a bar?/Can I bring my own bottle of wine?

We are decidedly not a BYO establishment. We have a full liquor license, and have a wide range of wines and beers available every night, as well as a selection of apperitivi and digestivi and a limited cocktail menu.

How often does the menu change?

We officially change the menu every week. That over-simplifies the process, which is in fact a more organic evolution. Some dishes change slightly in execution every night that we serve them, variations on some dishes live on the menu for a few weeks, and some nights we have some special cut of meat, fresh seafood, mushroom, or vegetable that we want to feature, even if we don’t have enough to put it on the menu.
