  • Derek

    Executive Chef
    Derek is passionate about food, wine, beer & everything to do with the restaurant industry. His interest in food began at a young age while visiting his grandparent’s farm in Ohio. From the fresh green beans & tomatoes to the grapes his grandfather made wine with, our chef was hooked. After attending New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, Derek cooked at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, followed by two years in the Caribbean. Coming back stateside, he worked in high end restaurants in Westport and New Haven for 4 years. In his time off, our chef enjoys kicking back with his wife, and watching a movie with a cold beer (he’s a sucker for an IPA)!
