The Recipes

Francis prides himself in using only the freshest and simplest ingredients grown by local and regional farmlands, as well as quality products imported from France & Italy. His cooking approach is eclectic and fanciful, integrating decades worth of diverse training. His fine dining restaurant on Long Beach Island is his culinary dream actualized: a comfortable, cozy eatery where he continues to master his skills.
