Why We Like This Place

  • Sepia's award-winning interior is the perfect combination of vintage and contemporary. This stylish, fully private dining venue works equally well for a black-tie wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, baby/bridal shower, wine tasting, corporate affair, or casual dinner.
  • They've got quite a reputation: Executive Chef Andrew Zimmerman received a James Beard Foundation Award nomination for "Best Chef: Great Lakes", and he and his culinary team have earned Sepia a Michelin star. Their Beverage Director and Sommelier, Arthur Hon, has a James Beard Foundation Award-nominated wine list and has been honored as a "2017 Sommelier of the Year" by Food & Wine Magazine.
  • Natural, organic and sustainable foods are the foundations of their cuisine. Sepia supports local artisan farmers and winemakers, incorporates its own homemade offerings, and creates traditional American dishes with a modern twist using seasonal and local produce. Vegetarian and vegan options are available, too.
