Private dining at Elske was created to be a warm, casual space where family and friends can gather to relax and enjoy delicious food. Chefs David and Anna Posey’s cuisine is soulful cooking combined with modern techniques and an open, wood-fired hearth. It is the perfect environment for celebrating with a party (small or large), for dinner, or for cocktails and snacks. We have events packages to fit each of these occasions.
