Chef John, Chef Nick and Deidra created a perfect Valentine's Day evening under "extreme" circumstances. The restaurant was without electricity from 8 AM-3:30 PM. They were just on the verge of calling everyone and cancelling dinner when the power came back on. THANK GOODNESS! They...More

Arguably the best meal in over 100 miles! Chef Gonzales cooks the meal in front of you, explaining exactly what he is doing, why he is doing it, and why he is not using certain ingredients. The staff makes every meal we have had with...More
