Chef Todd is an excellent private chef. Ive never tried veal and wanted to do so. He put together a menu just for us and prepared pan seared veal chops with one of the best sauces I’ve ever tasted (Roasted garlic and Rosemary Demi glaze) served in a bowl made of caramelized onion. Absolutely delicious..
