Such creativity comes naturally to a chef who thinks outside the box, expressing his creative spirit through food, he is in a never-ending search for fresh flavor combinations and new dishes. From pan flashed sea scallops served atop boursin cheese grits and finished with roasted garlic cauliflower, puree mustard espuma, and persimmon relish to cherry pinot noir glazed organic salmon, his dedication to excellence and innovation is evident. The chef’s progressive cooking style features ingredients and preparation techniques borrowed from many different cultures around the globe, with the resulting dishes served in a comfortably sophisticated atmosphere. Chef Phillip Damien and his culinary staff gather fresh local ingredients daily and prepare them with an inspired flair.
