Welcome to Ariana’s Home Page
From Chef Martin
It was not a fun nor easy decision to close in-house dining. November was a sobering reality with the virus spiking, travel restrictions going in place, and people, overall, very nervous about eating inside a restaurant. So, this is the plan for the winter, and well into spring. I intend to stay open the entire time with a small crew, and to be creative. Along with all of your support, we will survive this and be stronger for it.
So, the plan for Take Out:
We will be open Thursday Thru Monday, closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. We ask that you call ‘the day of’ between 1pm and 4pm, leave your name and number, and we will return your call to take your order. Pick Up times are between 5pm and 7pm.
We will do our best to have the menu for the upcoming week posted by Tuesday evening.
This coming week, Dec. 10th thru the 14th will be a Mediterranean Theme.
The following week, December 17th thru 21st, we will focus on Chinese cuisine.
Monday nights will be our TAPAS NIGHT.
Every Monday we will offer only small plates. The Tapas Menu will be posted Sunday Night for Monday. I love trying, and making, different small plates so people can try different flavors and ingredients. People tend to be more willing to be adventurous with smaller portions!
Beginning in January, we will run each theme for two weeks at a time to give everyone a chance to plan, and to try our different creations.
Ariana’s has also been known as a special occasion place for dining. I am very proud of the fact that many of you look forward to dining with us for a birthday or anniversary. Although we have lost that for now, I am now offering a special occasion dinner for 2 as a take-out option. This will be a three-course dinner with two different small plates, two different large plates and two different desserts, preferably Chef’s choice for the dishes, working with your dislikes and allergies and keeping some fun and interest with the dinner. The cost is $90 for the dinner for two plus tax. A nice value, and I hope an acceptable option for your special evening.
Once the Holidays are over, and we are into 2021, we will talk about our plan to offer meal kits and family dinners. Stay tuned!
Bless you all so much, these are trying times, yet we must go forward living our lives and finding joy with family, friends, and nature. This is a time for all of us to work together and help each other. We have received many nice comments supporting us and wishing us well, so we will go forward and do well.
Thank you again and be well, Chef Martin

Message from Chef Martin
Welcome to our restaurant. Our focus is on quality and variety in both our food and wine. I love wine and believe that wine is meant to be enjoyed with food. I look for quality and value in my wines. Offering a nice variety of wines from around the world, I like to ask my guests to try something new or ask us for a recommendation. Each week I will recommend a couple of wines to accompany that menu. Be well and thank you so much for your support.
**Take-out Alcoholic Beverages by bottle only per order of Governor
