Our Menu and Opening!

I know that you have all been waiting anxiously and patiently in anticipation of graft's opening, as we have, too!....I am so elated to announce that we are opening!
Seth and I just returned from catering a wedding in Los Olivos, California (Central Valley wine country) last week and we have finally gotten all of our last permits needed to open to the public.  We are having our soft opening this weekend and will be open to the public on Sunday, if all goes well.  I will keep you posted if we have to extend the public opening one day to Monday.  Please join us as early as Sunday, August 5 for our first night!

We will be open 7 nights a week:
Sunday- Thursday 4:30 pm to 10 pm
Friday - Saturday 4:30 pm to 11 pm

We have an awesome, unique wine menu, house-infused cocktails and craft beers at our bar.
We plan to stay open as long as you want to join us!  Also, we will begin weekend brunch as soon as possible, the earliest will be fall, i.e. late October, beginning November.  We will move into lunches, as well.

Within a month, we will have to-go/ pick-up for our burger, salads, apps and a featured sandwich.  This will continue to expand with more selection as we are open.

Below is our wine/ food pairing menu that is basically a cool way to eat an appetizer with a little bit of education for your palate and our seasonal menu that will change every several weeks,

We look forward to serving you all and seeing you so very soon!

Thanks again for your support,
