Food Culture: To Have and to Hold

In respect of those who prepare our food we must embrace the struggle, the art and tradition which creates such sumptuous delights for our palates. Luckily, in the past decade as people have become more involved in their food, interests have changed from homogenization to natural and true offerings allowing cooks to reveal their recipes and traditions in an honest and appealing light. 

 We crave the honest grit and flavor found in a proud establishment

before release into Brooklyn, NY.
and love to find ourselves behind the scenes of where our food is prepared.

There is a fascination with the technical and a curiosity to reinvent the wheel

however, behind every handmade dish be it molecular, deconstructed or crock pot cooked, there are hands which soulfully create.
