My wife and I had Chef Bobby over to make us a seafood dinner and he completely blew away our expectations. Chef Bobby called a few days ahead of time and helped us talk through the wine pairing. The evening of the event he was on time, brought all his own cookware, and left a spotless kitchen when he was done. The conversation was great and Chef Bobby took the time to show us how to properly cook the scallops and rock fish. I would 100% recommend this experience to anyone.
