Created with only the freshest ingredients, our guests can explore made-from-scratch menu options such as the Korean, a sandwich featuring our house-made bbq pork and Asian slaw, the dry-rubbed Applewood Smoked Pork Chop, or the Shrimp & Scallops, served atop our made-to-order sweet potato hash.

Meet The Team

Mahrie (Anderson) Ohren / Founder

Mahrie Ohren was born and raised in the lakes area before enlisting in the United States Air Force. While enlisted, she was fortunate enough to live and travel abroad, which ultimately introduced her to a world full of flavor and a passion for experiencing culture through food and drink.

“Nothing beats experiencing Italy through a vibrant Sangiovese, Japan through a local favorite, Edamame, Germany through an aromatic Riesling, or England through a Lamb Gyro, sure to satisfy any appetite after enjoying craft beer at a local pub.’ ~ Mahrie

Following her time in the United States Air Force, Mahrie obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree before embarking on her journey as a restaurateur. Since, she is actively pursuing her sommelier certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers, Americas.

As travel was and is a large part of her life, Mahrie finds joy in bringing her experiences to Alexandria through food and drink ~ and hopes you do too!
