I really wanted to do something special for my wife for our 11 year Anniversary. I spoke with Chef Dan and he made sure that the night would be memorable. The food was absolutely amazing, his professionalism and service was top notch it was just like we were in the restaurant. He made sure to explain each dish and his homemade ricotta was by far the best I ever tasted. This was the first time that my wife and I had a personal Chef and will not be the last. He worked with us through the whole process and made sure to make food we would enjoy. Chef Dan thank you, thank you, thank you for making this day special, I look forward to working with you again.
