Eat & Drink
To enhance the unique location that is Shene, the resident chef from Frank Restaurant cooks on an open fire and wood-fired oven combined to create a rustic menu that is best shared together. External caterers can be brought in for larger event’s but it is preferable to use the available onsite catering.
