We're really excited about this partnership because of the fresh farm to truck veggies we cook up for experimental specials; Isabelle Farm feels a little like a home away from home; and we get to meet new customers in the Lafayette area. We hope to create a community of food lovers that enjoy our regular menu items and our farm specials.
