executive chef/maintenance man/counselor/mentor/giver/owner :: steven perrone
what can we say about this humble man, who finds it uncomfortable to talk about himself and his talent.
known around here as "the food whisperer" he is a self taught chef who fueled his culinary journey with passion, perseverance, and a profound understanding of flavors. he is truly a chef who fears no one or nothing (except clowns) when it comes to food.
general manager/wine taster/designer/51% owner :: eileen perrone
eileen is the one responsible for the upscale retro-modern look and that comfortable, almost womb-like feeling that the restaurant emanates. armed with only a glass of wine, a determined attitude, and an eye for cool, she has created a "metropolitan" look with that little "burgh" feel.
she is the "face of the front", the "hostess with the mostess", the "glue", the "wo-man with the plan", ........I think you get the idea.
chef de cuisine :: carlos mcgrigor
we are very excited about carlos joining us after his 18 year stint as executive chef of collectors cafe in myrtle beach. but then again we were also excited about the return of the mcrib.
chef de partie :: alex byrne
pawley's island local for the last twenty years. alex is an edgamacated young man who attended johnson and wales university of charlotte north carolina. 10 years of restaurant experience and working for steven perrone for three years proves he is truly a glutton for punishment.
loves: the color indigo blue and day old baked goods
hates: the letter 'p' and anything with polka dots (double hate)
chef de partie :: ken gainey
ken "the flash" gainey is our lunch chef. a bit on the quiet side, but what he lacks in conversation he makes up for with mad sandwich skills, yo.
he has most definitely made our sous vide reuben "his bitch".
beer pusher/wine slinger :: caroline cusick
caroline is far more than our number one bartender. promoted from her position as number one deli girl, her pension for imbibing made her a natural fit for behind the bar. not just another pretty face (literally), her charm and wit will captivate you (after you have a few glasses of wine). trust us, she will have you at "hello".
server extraordinaire :: zach peek
zach hails from the "bluegrass state" of kentucky. he was born fourth generation into the family horseshoe embellishment business. "spoiled" is an understatment when describing his childhood, he was given his first scribe at the age of twelve and summers in rangoon were commonplace. despite his "silver spoon" upbringing, zach is really just a regular guy who enjoys amateur crab walking competitions on the beach, clogging, humming the mega hits of zamfir the pan flautist, and pride in his professional service.
