My Kitchen Staff

Nearly every time I sign a menu, I include the words: "It's all about the Ingredients." It's impossible to make extraordinary dishes without using extraordinary building blocks. That's why I'm constantly searching for the absolutely best ingredients that I can find.

In a great kitchen the ingredients are not just the special fish, truffles, tiny lettuces and herbs that we are able to work with. I am very fortunate to also be surrounded by an amazing staff of talented people, cooks, front staff and sommeliers who all work hard to bring each and every night of service to an exceptional level.

Over the next few weeks, I'd like to introduce some of these people to you. They are a fun, talented and a diverse group of individuals. They have my heartfelt gratitude.

Chef Duffy,

Had dinner at your Chef's Table on Wednesday and I just want to express how amazing the whole experience was. Every course was a surprise of well thought of flavor profiles and blew us away. I can eat the Rissotto over and over again and the Cucumber Dessert left a very huge impression on me, brilliant.

Thank you to you and your staff!
