Executive chef and co-owner Christopher Hope, and Sous chef Greg Baker, have created and executed a world-class menu of classical dishes and intriguing, eclectic choices for our guests during the past 12 years. Coupled with soothing interior colors, a loyal and experienced waitstaff, and the ability to host a nearly anonymous romantic evening for two or a shout-from-rooftops celebration for 100, Sperata caters to and array of audiences and a variety of tastes.

            Diners who enjoy a traditional, well-timed but never rushed dining experience, revel in Chef’s four-course tasting menu, which includes appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert. Some may simply prefer a salad and an entrée, while others may enjoy an exploration of small plate offerings paired with wines or their favorite beverage. Whatever the dining quest requires on a particular evening, Sperata satisfies our patrons’ palate and needs.

            Special dining events, such as wine-pairing, whiskey-pairing and beer-pairing dinners are planned year-round, while Sperata’s holiday meals are some of the most popular events at the restaurant. Thanksgiving, our annual New Year’s Eve Celebration, Mother’s Day and Easter brunch are among the most popular with our clientele.

            Private dining events, held aloft in Sperata’s upstairs’ private dining and special events space, may be arranged with advance notice. Rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, anniversary celebrations, corporate dinners or luncheons receive high marks from our guests, with custom-tailored food and beverage options suited for all occasions
