Message from the GM (November 2021)

Dear Members,

I wanted to take this time to express my sincerest gratitude for all the comments you all have made during this difficult time at the club as it pertains to the lack of available Kitchen personnel and your response to my cooking abilities. It has always been a big part of my career and albeit stressful and difficult, I have certainly enjoyed knowing that with the help of our dedicated staff we are able to keep the Kitchen open and keep our staff employed.

Although we are closer to having a new Chef, we are still looking for a new Sous Chef, so my tenure in the kitchen will most likely last through this month.

Your patience and understanding with reservations thus far is very much appreciated and still very much needed until I am able to get these positions filled and trained. I would  also like to thank the board of directors for their continued support and understanding of the difficulties we are faced with.

I would also like to announce the addition of Nicole Rubertone to our team who will be training with me to perform general club operations & managerial duties as soon as I can resolve the aforementioned kitchen issues. She has been doing a great job and although many of you have already met her, please welcome her to our family with open arms.

The Holidays are right around the corner. We will be open this Thanksgiving with a bounty of delectable offerings from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm so please call us with your reservation.

I would like to take this time to remind everyone that we strongly recommend that all members make your dining room reservations 24 to 48 hours in advance, and to notify the club promptly of any cancellations or changes to your reservation.

Reservations will be gratefully accepted at the last minute, subject to availability. We also encourage members to reserve your cut for our "Prime Rib Night" every Saturday.

Please make sure we have updated credit card information as well as telephone numbers, e-mail and physical addresses.
