Where do I begin?!? Brian is beyond fabulous! I had a small elegant birthday party for my dear friend and Brian suggested an intimate menu. It seemed extremely complicated to me, however he pulled it off with grace and beauty. Their were 3 men there who love to cook and Brian welcomed them into the kitchen and showed them some easy tricks for difficult dishes! They were so happy. We women could have cared less as we order reservations! None of us could understand why Brian is not the head chef of his own restaurant?!? If you are looking for someone who will prepare Horseradish Sake Tenderloin for most of your guest and then a beautiful Portbello stuffed mushroom for that one guest who is vegan and display your meal fit for Gordon Ramsey, you have your CHEF! He keeps the cost of the food to minimum while serving food so tender and delicious it literally quivers as your fork comes near. His personality is so precious that he would pop out of the kitchen every now and then with a joke as we were telling jokes like a stand up comedian! Everyone fell in love with him and one of my guests wanted to adopt him --- wife, children and all!! This chef loves his job with a passion and loves doing his job with a passion. If you are not happy, he is not happy. Brian is a chef you cannot afford to pass on----if you do for someone that may be a little less by maybe $100. or so----you will miss the quality, the show, the whole nine yards. Oh! The ultra clean kitchen too!! Love ya, Brian everyone tells you hello and loves you too. God Bless.
