I relocated to St Augustine in February of 2016 from New Hampshire, with my wife Ashley, to start a family near my own. I found Chef Brian Whittington’s newest endeavor on craigslist and came in for an interview, where we quickly found that we shared similar ideals in what it means to be a restaurant. Being a positive influence in the community, appreciation for both the produce and the farmers, respecting animals in making sure that no part goes to waste and creating a culture that promotes constant growth for all individuals within the establishment. These were the keys to what we believe build a solid restaurant. That and really good, honest food. I can say I am proud that we strive to maintain those standards on a daily basis and look forward to seeing our growth as a group and community throughout this adventure. Thank You to all who have supported the restaurant and new diners to come, we look forward to serving you.

We look forward to seeing you...
