The Leopard restaurant offers international food in a casual setting and is owned and run by Andrea Burgener and Nick Gordon. The menu changes frequently according availability of fresh ingredients and cook and author Andrea’s whim. Wine list is a concise mix of unusual discoveries and established quality.
This is not a fast food place. Dishes amble out of the kitchen – which is a good indication that it’s freshly prepared and actually cooked, not simply a ‘ready meal’ warmed up. Our cocktail lounge is gone but we now offer all our wines by the glass.
We use the best ingredients available which is why the menu changes so often. It’s also why we only use grass fed beef, free range poultry and pork and seafood from sustainable sources.
