To our patrons,


Thank you for a great first ten months! We have been overwhelmed with the positive reception we have received from our guests. Your encouragement has meant a great deal as we have worked through the early days of the business. 


Our initial concept for Amapola was to create a welcoming space where we could share great food and wine with our patrons, while being able to spend more time with our children. While we have been very successful with the execution of the restaurant, the time spent away from home has become far more than we intended.

With this in mind, we have decided to suspend our daily dinner service. The time required for the style of dinners we have been serving are more than anticipate


Our focus will be on lunch service, Monday through Friday. Many of our most popular dinner items will be featured on the lunch menu. We also plan to host special event dinners, wine classes and tastings for our wine club members. Stay tuned for dates and follow us on Instagram for updates @amapola_kitchenandwine


Thank you for your patience, understanding and patronage as we move into the next phase of Amapola.


With gratitude,


Jeff & Crystal Birkemeier
