Executive Chef

I grew up in the kitchen with my mom and my Sicilian grandmother. Clean Mediterranean flavors: citrus, herbs, olive oils, tomatoes; that's the way I like to cook and eat.

Over the last 15 years as a chef, I've learned to respect local and sustainable ingredients. We are fortunate to live in a bountiful area, rich with family farms that produce such a variety of quality meats and produce.

Each season brings its own abundance. We will take full advantage of all the area has to offer. Our seafood will come from vendors who are committed to sustainability. I am excited to offer NWA something to complement the Bentonville food scene.
