...and then came

The REFUGE features a modern twist on Italian and Latin cuisine with a nod to the classics and bar food prepared into the wee hours of the night in our wood burning oven.

Enter a warm and inviting environment … with an edge, The REFUGE is a place where everyone can feel welcome … from those looking for a casual, cool place to

hang out and enjoy the finest selection of craft beers, wines and hand crafted cocktails to those wanting the simple pleasure of a memorable dining experience with friends, family and business associates.

Our goal at The REFUGE is simple … create a restaurant that you can come as you are in a comfortable engaging

environment to eat something good and sip something sinful.

We are not easy to define and even harder to forget … we did it on purpose so you could spend time enjoying a fast Lunch, a relaxing Dinner, Sunday Brunch or the Happy Hour sounds of our “Living Jukebox” playing into the night.


The REFUGE is a place where the button down crowd comes to impress and the hipsters and locals come out to mingle for drinks and dinner.

… and they never leave.

“Great food, spirits, and more...”
