The best dining experiences are the ones in which we’re seated around a table sharing food and stories with others. We hope Lazy Bear is the best dinner party you’ve ever attended.

Our food is modern American. We serve flavors that are intrinsically delicious and familiar, in a format that calls to mind those great American shared eating experiences that we love. It’s communal and social, but the food and drinks are refined.



We are open Tuesday-Saturday, and closed Sunday and Monday. Normally we do two seatings each night at 6:00pm and 8:30pm, but may sometimes sell tickets for other times.

Ticket Pricing Info

The tasting menu varies between $165 and $185 per person depending on day and time, for 14+ courses. Beverage pairings are available at an additional $95, and a Reserve Pairing is offered at $140. We automatically add a 20% service charge when purchasing a ticket (and on any purchases you make at the restaurant).

A Note About Ticketing

We serve one menu each night, a tasting menu with many courses, in two seatings: 6pm and 8:30pm. We seat communally at long American elm tables. All of our guests are served each course at the same time, and cooks come out and describe the dishes. Lazy Bear is a unique, social experience that depends on a packed house to create an energetic vibe. By requiring pre-purchase of tickets, we minimize the frequency of no-shows, and ensure that we create the best possible dining experience at the best possible price for what we offer.

We sell each month’s tickets all at once, usually at noon on a Wednesday in the middle of the previous month. For example, July tickets were sold on Wednesday, June 15 at noon. We usually give about a week of notice on the exact ticket sale date via Twitter, and send an email to our mailing list on the day of our ticket sale.

Tickets are not refundable and can’t be switched to a different date or time, but they are transferable to other people. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, baseball game, or movie.
