Order tickets
Family Meal tickets are sold in pairs. (i.e. 1 ticket = two people, 2 tickets = four people, etc.)
Ever wonder what our chefs are passing around their own table? We’re returning to our roots and inviting you in for a Travailian family meal. You will be eating some of our favorite dishes with hearty portions, great quality products, and lots of home cooked soul. Each meal consists of four courses served family style (or shared by your party). Dinner will be served at our 16 seat diner bar surrounding the kitchen, giving you a close up view of your chefs’ labor of love. These menus will be carefully crafted each week starting in September. View our lineup below to choose the meal you’d like to dig into most.

Also available with your meal is a curated wine package. Weekly we will feature a unique bottle of wine at a great value and then complement that with another ½ carafe or bottle of something else delicious and tasty. And same as above, these wines are served to be shared.

***Tickets sold on this page are for the Week 1 Menu only.***

Week 1 Menu:
Heirloom Tomato Salad
Chicken Tortellini w/ Parmesan, broccolini, and chanterelles
Pork Chops, roasted fingerlings, and elote

Wine Package (optional):
Bottle Tommasi Family, 2011, Casisano Brunello di Montalcino, Italy

There are two seatings each evening, one at 5:30 and one at 7:30. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early. If you arrive after the meal begins you may miss out on a course or two.

***One ticket covers dinner for TWO people.***
Unlike ticketed reservations for Travail that are 1 ticket per diner, these tickets are sold by the pair.

Tickets also include a service fee that covers tax, gratuity, and a small processing fee. You may also purchase a ticket that includes dinner for two plus a wine package paired with great consideration and served over the course of dinner. Additional beverages will be offered when you dine.

Please note that at this time we will not be able to make major substitutions for dietary restrictions such as vegetarian, gluten free, etc. If you have smaller restrictions such as a nut allergy, we will do our best to accommodate. Our hope is that you will be able to choose a menu that best fits your dietary needs for the time being. If you have any questions about what might be accommodated, we recommend emailing us at before purchasing your ticketed reservations.
