Featured Restaurant

Good kitchens function well with strong management and people skills; but great kitchens and great restaurants thrive on Top Chefs who have a passion for food, a concern for what the guests want, and know how to mesh all that together with a touch of creativity. We see that in the one of the newest young culinary guns to join the team at Tannin WIne Bar + Kitchen, Chef Pablo Munoz-Sevilla. He took over as Exec Chef last Fall but is no stranger to either the hard work or the thoughtful preparation required to get a kitchen running smoothly and the guests coming back.
