  1. I've spent many a night in a kitchen, particularly this one. I would say that it was an off night based on my experiences. Not sure what happened, but somewhere along the lines, a dish was able to slip through the cracks. I know he recently lost his sous whom had been with him for years. He was one of those "lifers" who follows the chef to any restaurant he goes to.
  2. I would definitely recommend you take advantage of the gift card and return. Chef Jonathan is putting out some of the best food in the area, IMO.
  3. Thank you so much for coming in! You are correct about the pimento cheese. Some people get geeked out about softies, so I added the cheese to familiarize guests.

  7. Carlos and I started at the same time at Evening Star Cafe under Chef Brian Hooyenga. I'm very excited for Carlos! Congratulations homie!
  8. "Del Ray Pizzeria and Sports Bar is probably good with Eric Reid at the helm." Thanks Don, a few words. I don't know shit about pizza, I know that I put 110% into what I do and I'll stand by it. I've never liked the idea of running a "pizzeria", everyone always has an opinion, "this isn't NY style", "I'm from Chicago", "I grew up in Italy, I know what pizza is" blah blah blah. This is my style pizza, I offer thin and pan. You'll find some of my old dishes from DMG on the menu. It's hard to sell them sometimes. When you go to a "pizzeria" you already know what you're going to order. It's lik
