Recently transported from the Bay Area in Northern California, Brian has deep roots seeped in cooking. He grew up in an Italian family from the East Coast where his passion for food began. His first job where he was fourteen was in the produce section of a local grocery store. This is where his love affair with fresh produce was born. After attending college for a degree in Sociology, Brian couldn’t escape the lure of cooking.
Brian's mentors Jeremiah Tower, Suzette Gresham, and Yoshi Kojima helped cultivate his love for food and cooking. His philosophy is simple, “Let the best ingredients shine on their own with minimal preparation.” His ability to bring the farm to the table has transformed the menu to offer such items as Pan Roasted Halibut with Manilla Clam “Chowder”, or a succulent Herb Crusted Colorado Lamb.
His appetizers let the bounty of local farms sparkle. His Squash Blossoms filled with ricotta and basil, and fresh corn sauce will tantalize your taste buds, or try his Heirloom Tomato and Bean Salad with Marcona Almonds. Brian has married his love of fresh seasonal produce and a French-Mediterranean influenced menu to create a memorable dining experience.
