“An ode to good eats, beats, and inclusivity,” “‘Session”,  a new small, local business has entered the restaurant scene. Looking to offer a menu that can cater too all, meat and veggie lovers included, this spot has something for everyone and is perfect for food and music lovers alike.

In addition to their food choices, “Session” also takes pride in their music selection, playing an eclectic mix of hip-hop, disco, jazz, and house. 

The atmosphere gives off a creative vibe with hanging plants throughout, eccentric furniture pieces, and loads of artwork that adorn the walls. After ordering, instead of the traditional numbered table markers, customers are given pictures of music legends including Pharrell, Tupac, Kendrick Lamar, and David Bowie. “Session” offers new merchandise that shows off the variety of music showcased in  restaurant, featuring older tunes and tributes such as to the hip-hop group “A Tribe Called Quest”.

The menu takes inspiration from many different cultures, and provides vegan and gluten-free options. Examples of their fan favorite menu items include: breakfast fried rice and the Hot Boi sandwich, both containing refreshing and filling ingredients with a delightful presentation.

“It’s really great to see another sustainable farm-to-table restaurant pop up locally! I also really love their menu and all the versatile items and the addition of really great music makes this spot truly unique,” junior Christine Powers said.

The restaurant had one of their first musically themed ‘sessions’ at the beginning of December, a nighttime vinyl swap that included vendors, drinks, and a D.J. Many in the community are looking forward to more events like this in the future.

“I can’t wait to see what new events “Session” will hold. This place is definitely more than just a restaurant,” senior Cassie Carbonneau said.
