Sanctuary is an independently owned 20 table haven near the Guthrie - with rough wood and limestone walls built in the 1860s, chandeliers and gargoyles like the sanctuaries of Europe. There are no TVs to distract you from conversations with business colleagues, friends or lovers over amazing food in this comfortable yet elegant setting.
Here you can escape the ordinary by enjoying French Chef Patrick Atanalian’s New American cuisine. His composed plates take from the best immigrant influences in often surprising but delightful ways - using fresh, local, organic, sustainably farmed and healthy ingredients. It's often up to you to join in the adventure by mixing and matching the flavors he provides!
This restaurant week, in honor of American fall traditions, the menu starts with pumpkin. In honor of the birthday of Chef Escoffier, the father of French cooking, Atanalian has included truffle in a course selection. Bon appétit!
Sanctuary’s bartenders keep the cocktail menus seasonally exciting and the wine list changes to compliment the menus.
