Bold. Local. Social.

Local cuisine meets the bold flavors and playful techniques of executive chef Jeff Seizer at Counting House.  A social experience set amongst the art of today, designed to provide you with an easy-going escape that will feed your soul. Inspired by old school European techniques and simple preparations, his menu is familiar, yet unexpected.
