I have not been in the hospitality business my whole career and if that is a surprise to some, I say “thank you”.  I spent the previous twenty five years in the transportation industry.  Most of my friends had quite a chuckle when I told them of my future plans.  They all said that I was crazy for getting into such a tough business and my reply to them was that I was coming from a very tough business.

Last Sunday, my wife Tiina and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. It was a great day in a lot of respects.

What a wild weekend at The Bernards Inn in August! It's not every weekend a movie celebrity spends time in Bernardsville, NJ.

I wish them the best of luck and a happy life together.

For me, my inspiration is using fresh and local ingredients to make great food that our guests will enjoy and go home to tell their family’s about.  Growing up in the “garden state” I have experienced fresh ingredients since my childhood.  Spending time with my grandparents in Maplewood, NJ, I was exposed to their small garden which was filled with figs, tomatoes, basil and a variety of different vegetables and herbs.  I can remember going into their garden, picking tomatoes, and helping my grandmother clean, cut and dress them for a simple salad with olive oil, parmesan cheese,...
