Meet Our Team

  • David Lauffer
    General Manager

    Two things set us apart from other restaurant companies I have encountered. One, how we source and prepare our food. The menus are fresh, chef-driven, seasonally focused, and designed based upon our direct personal relationships with local farmers. The second thing is our people. We employ people who are genuinely passionate about what they do. When you combine passion with purpose you get extraordinary results.
