Forepaugh’s Wins 2015 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence

Posted on

We are proud to announce that we have won the 2015 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence!  Forepaugh’s will be featured in the August issue of their magazine which will be out on news stands July 22nd.

We’ll toast to that!


Happy Independence Day!

Posted on

Our restaurant will be closed – as it typically is – on the 4th of July. Because the holiday falls on a Saturday and we are normally closed on Mondays, we thought this would be a great time to give our staff a three day weekend off.

We apologize for any inconvenience and wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday!

Taste of Brazil Patio Party on June 24 & 25

Posted on

Our patio parties have been smokin’, so we’re hosting another one – this time for two evenings!  Chef will be firing up the grill and treating everyone to a Taste of Brazil. Come experience some of what he recently enjoyed on the annual Taher Chefs’ Council trip.

Forepaugh’s patio parties provide an excellent and affordable way to try small portions of a variety of food and libations.  Grab a punch card and a patio or porch perch and choose exactly what you wish to try by seeing and smelling first.  It’s fun and fabulously Forepaugh’s!!!
