April 30th

A hard knock life

TIFFIN– It started as a comic strip in the 1930s, became a Broadway smash in the 1970s and 80s, and in April 2013, it hit the stage at Clear Creek Amana High School.

The menu, created entirely by co-owner and chef Jeremy Rullman, is fresh and distinctive and designed to give patrons a lot of input on how dishes are prepared to their own individual tastes.
