Restaurant Week at Policy


We hope you can join us for Summer Restaurant Week from August 15-20. We're offering a special four-course dinner menu, plus an amuse-bouche for just $35!

Our menu highlights dishes with international influences and strong Latin-American flavors, such as Executive Chef Lonnie Zoeller's Shrimp Empanadas, Pork Belly Chicharron, and Smoked Duck Breast.

You get to pick one dish per section and then wrap your meal up with dessert, of course.*
