SIGNATURE CHEF’S TASTING 2017

The Team at Apis is proud to announce that the Signature Chef's Tasting menu is back. We have changed the format to showcase all the new and exciting things happening with us. This menu will feature a dinner that spans an exciting food and drink tour around our entire campus. This will be an extended experience that will be comprehensive of all the programs and facets of Apis and Sorellina.
  As always, thank you for your continued support. 

At your service,
The Apis Team

It is important to state that the design of this extensive menu cannot allow us to accommodate any restrictions, allergies, or cancellations. We understand this is a very extreme policy, but it is for a very extreme, curated and planned dinner which takes weeks to get ready for. We are more than happy to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies in our regular tasting menu format which is available any Friday or Saturday at Apis.

The menu will be fully inclusive of beverage pairing, tax and tip and will be $260 per guest

HOW TO BOOK A TICKET:

It will be a lottery system where you will email cheftasting@apisaustin.com to enter your name and party size desired (up to 6). We will draw 3 weeks prior and contact you if you were selected, at that time we will take credit card information to book the ticket. 

Friday April 14th we will be serving our first revamped Signature Tasting menu at 6 PM. This will be available for 6 people. It will be designed to showcase all that Apis and Sorellina have in store now and in the future. The Signature Tasting is a dining experience that will start with personalized cocktails and Japanese fish sliced table side by Chef Adam in the bar room. Next, you will be served outdoors, enjoying some of our farm grown vegetables while sitting in the garden. Then back to the Apis Dining room to enjoy some dishes that will highlight our in-house programs and things to come. Next, we will go over to Sorellina to eat some very old, very funky aged meats grilled directly in front of you with our embers from the pizza oven. That will be followed by some cocktails in the kitchen, and finally you will end the evening with our pastry Chef Lauren giving you a tour through the highlights of her program with some sweets and desserts and our rare and allocated Whisky and Amaro cart on our patio.
