elysian is no longer open on a regular basis for dinner.
The deals start at $125 per person, for a selection of items below (or whatever menu we generate with your input) plus beer and wine (selected according to your input), plus being in this lovely place for three or so hours. Costs can go up to $175 per person with higher end wines, a more elaborate menu, custom cocktails or full bar.
If this pricing seems high, we kindly ask that you consider what you get for your dollars:
Delicious food and drink, friendly service, and full use of the space, indoors and out, with no other persons here (we don’t do several parties at once. . . ). Your costs might be lower at a restaurant, but if it is a good restaurant, not by much if at all, and then you are, well, at a restaurant.
