Chef Paco exceeded our expectations! Everyone followed social distancing and precautions were taken. Felt very comfortable. Food was amazing, steak cooked perfect. Wanted to lick the shrimp and grits plate! Will definitely hire chef Paco again

Chef Paco came to our house and prepared an awesome full service experience at a time when we hadn’t been able to go to a restaurant in 5 months. All four courses were delicious but my favorite was the shrimp & grits!
