Founded in 1989, Chef Tim Kringle is the original owner. Dining Room, Catering and Marketing Specialists, Justin McDonald and Brandon McDonald, and Partner and Chef Charles Taucer IV, are operating partners in the daily operations. Hell's Kitchen star and Executive Chef Chris Motto takes care to see that everyone’s opinion is valued, and creativity and individuality are encouraged both in the kitchen and at the table.
Chefs, managers, and partners worked their way up through the ranks, and many dedicated employees have been with the restaurant from the beginning in 1989. Manager Cathy Cutrer has been leading the pack every day since day one! She books events and meets you at the front door with a smile daily.
David Kent (1989) and Keo Bounnavong (1989) are long-time employees with years of experience. We also welcomed a few of members to the management family in 2014. Wine Director Derrick Davis, Catering Manager Ricky Galloway, and Associate Managers Moe Wilson (2002) & Ryan Fitzgerald are now welcome edition daily to our management team.
Our staff is like a family. Over the years we have worked together and become closer with every shift. It's nice to look forward to coming to work. Communication is the key to keeping this family together.
