Chef Todd Butler's culinary journeys have taken him to Finland, France, Japan, and the Netherlands in pursuit of new gastronomic techniques. Born in Germany and raised on America's East Coast, his story has had a globetrotter's edge from day one. His early interest in cooking was sparked by watching his mother and sisters' adroit navigation of the kitchen, and that's where he still draws his inspiration from today. He's synthesizing the flavors of the world in hopes of capturing the nearly universal joy of mom's cooking.
His signature dishes highlight the accumulated wisdom of his travels, spotlighting shareable small plates inspired by French, Mediterranean, Latin American, Asian, and southern favorites. Todd's dishes highlight fresh seafood, such as lobster knuckle and rock shrimp, as well as rich cheeses, complex sauces, and high-end meats including pork belly, duck confit, and beef short ribs. Similarly, bartenders infuse spirits with everything from muddled berries and mint to scotch bonnet peppers to forge an equally adventurous cocktail list.
