Over the next 20+ years, Zachary has worked in various restaurants perfecting his craft in the kitchen and becoming a strong and patient leader. Zachary joined our team in 2019 and has been an asset since day one bringing fresh and local seafood inspired dishes to the menu. Through his years of experience obtaining a solid foundation, he will step into his role as Head Chef with pride.
