Basic Necessities celebrates the European mentality which places value on thoughtful food preparation, conversation and relaxation. La table in French signifies so much more than just“the table,” or dinner table. It means a place where family and friends can eat, drink, talk and just be together for hours over a simple and fresh meal.

At Basic Necessities Kay Pfaltz merges her knowledge of French wines and cheeses with Sallie Justice and Mae Collins Tyree to create the unique atmosphere and cuisine that has earned Basic Necessities its many followers.

In many ways they have subscribed to the philosophy of the “Slow Food Movement” since opening in June of 1997. They strive to use local, seasonal and pesticide-free farm products, sourcing seasonal produce from local farms such as Blue Heron Farm, Little Hat Creek Farm, Twin Springs Farm, Whisper Hill Farm and Edible Landscaping. They are committed to serving free-range, humanely-treated meat and source from Timber Creek Organics and The Rock Barn.

Basic Necessities is a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable haven where time stops, if only for just a bit. Learn more here...
