Celebrate with us

From November 1 through November 30, 2015, you are invited to celebrate Harvest’s 40th Anniversary with a series of in-restaurant events.

Anniversary Tasting Menu

Executive Chef Tyler Kinnett and Executive Pastry Chef Brian Mercury have created a special Anniversary Tasting Menu that will be offered throughout November, inspired by the celebrated chefs who have made their mark at Harvest over the past four decades, and their signature dishes during their time at the restaurant. Notable guests such as Julia Child also served as inspiration for the menu. Guests can choose from two tasting menu options:

  • A three-course menu $48; Wine pairing $20 (see menu)
  • A six-course menu $68; Wine pairing $35 (see menu)

Anniversary Gift

When you enjoy the Anniversary Tasting Menu at Harvest, your experience will conclude on a sweet note with a special Birthday takeaway created by Executive Pastry Chef Brian Mercury.

Anniversary Toast

Harvest is offering “throwback” specialty cocktails priced at 1970s prices, including the “Harvest Wallbanger” at $2.95. The Harvest Wallbanger is the restaurant’s take on the classic drink made popular in the mid-70s.


Celebrating your own birthday or wedding anniversary during November?  If so, you’ll enjoy a special “anniversary rate” of 15% off your total bill (excluding alcohol, tip and gratuity). To redeem, please note celebration at time of making reservation and mention to your server.
