to the seasonal menu, Dan and Ticha also celebrate the individual
country by having five to six “National Day Weeks” each
year when in addition to the regular menu a single country is featured
in a three course prix fix of truly authentic recipes. These menus
are very popular because customers have a rare opportunity to enjoy
what would be a home cooked meal in the country featured and at
a reasonable price.
