Newly-added!

Chef Owen Bernstein made his mark as a private chef, so it’s not surprising that dining in his “kitchen” isn’t exactly going to be like dining at a restaurant. Think of it more like enjoying a mostly (but-not-entirely) vegetable- and seafood-focused meal in a friendly home environment, complete with specially crafted menus that can accommodate allergies and personal tastes.
