From the kitchen to the bar, everything we serve is defined by a passion for exploring unique flavor combinations. Wood is more than a name: our wood-fired oven is at the heart of it all, mustering a dynamic menu of small-plate, American fare, made with the best ingredients the season has to offer. Though the dishes regularly change, they are defined by a few constants: meat is butchered in-house from humanely-raised animals; vegetables are drawn from local family farms; and all pasta and sausage are freshly made, straight from the Wood kitchen to the plate.
Wood’s Restaurant Week Dinner highlights include Smoked Beet Tartare, Skate Wing A la Meuniere, Radiatore al Formaggio, Farro Verde Risotto.
