Cavé Bistro offers a seasonal, farm-to-table gluten free menu of healthy dishes made from scratch by Chef Doug Stehle, served in an intimate, casual bistro space. They use grassfed meats, pasture-raised poultry, wild game and a variety of seafood, vegetables, fruits, nuts and produce. All foods are carefully sourced from local and regional farms, fisheries and other specialty purveyors who have the highest standards for quality and handling. Chef Doug follows the simple philosophy to eat like our ancestors did, only better!
