DelecTable kicks off autumn with a menu designed to honor Wisconsin’s seasonal harvest. This ambitious menu springs from the creative mind of Chef Jake Lawler. Chef Jake’s emphasis is always on locally sourced ingredients, and this menu is a stellar example of his commitment. The imprint of Wisconsin’s diverse and delicious produce shines throughout this menu, and is the perfect start to another adventurous season in DelecTable’s popular dinner series.

Chef Lawler will stay open to the availability of seasonal produce, and the menu will evolve to reflect the harvest and his creative approach to locally sourced cuisine.
