A seasonal side accompanies, as well as a gelato sundae.

The cubano is served with a fresh Tomato, Melon, and Mint Salad. Aaaaand…. Rum Cake Doughnuts! Perfect brunch food.
Saturday September 9th - 100 Yard Dinner • 5 course seated dinner • $100
Using ingredients within 100 yards of the dinner table, this is one of PFF’s most popular and cherished yearly dinners.
