Menu development 

you want the perfect menu to reflect your location and style

you want the menu to work perfectly in your space

you want creativity and flavor, but something you know your teams can replicate time and time again

I once had a restaurant operator tell me that they wanted their menu to look like they had a $100K + salaried chef on staff, but they didn't have the budget for said chef.  

this is where I come in: I bring the experience, design, and creativity of a seasoned, high-end chef to your business at a fraction of the price.
