Only 12 tables grace the interior of Bravo! Nader's cozy restaurant space, and Head Chef Nader Gebrin isn’t shy about bustling between them to rattle off recommendations and fist-bump his beloved customers. The convivial chef–who doubles as an avid fisherman–treats taste buds to light yet flavorful dishes that swell with housemade components, such as sausage with rolled beef braciole and meatballs in a tomato ragout. Three types of fresh fish—served whole and filleted—and homemade pesto gnocchi shine on Chef Nader's lively menu, where meals can start with a warm honey, goat cheese, and avocado arugula salad and finish with sweet bites of napoleon.
After sampling the restaurant's fine pasta dishes and health-conscious plates—including gluten-free options—guests master the preparation of mouthwatering Italian cuisine for themselves through the restaurant’s fun, interactive cooking classes. Chef Nader leads each lesson, imparting knowledge gained from his studies at a Swiss culinary school and years spent in the restaurant business.
