Chef Zach was an absolute pleasure to have in my house. We booked his surf and turf experience and WOW! it was incredible. Each course was better than the last. His sushi expertise shined bright on the first two courses. Also, his steak entrée competes with some of the best steak dishes I've ever had. Chef Zach is very approachable, professional, and extremely proficient at his craft. I highly recommend booking a private chef experience. Oh and best of all? No dishes to clean up! My wife and I are already checking our calendar to see when we might be able to have him back. Thanks, Chef Zach!
