Our Story

Let food be the experience.

Food is the global language for bringing people together. We use it for celebration, for comfort, for nourishment. Some of the most memorable life experiences happen over food.

Whether you have friends gathered around a dinner table, your colleagues in a meeting room, or a special life event to revere, Chef Drew will create the perfect food experience to add to the memory.

Also specializing in specific dietary needs and/or restrictions, Chef Drew shows his clientele that, even though you may have to sacrifice a food, you never have to sacrifice flavor.

What People are Saying

“Beautiful 5 course menu”

Chef Drew delivered a beautiful 5 course menu for our Vol. 1 guests, inspired by the five S’s: sour, salty, savory, smokey, sweet. We’re still dreaming of the Tobacco Duck with Charred Spring Onion and Ash, Bourbon Cherry glaze, and Micro Arugula.
