I decided to go vegan with my family, and we have not looked back. I believe that variety is what makes the dining experience exciting! My menu is a reflection of different cuisines. I grew up marrying latin spice and southern cuisine. You will experience some of my new Vegan, and plant based family favorites. My years of working with different chefs and a deeper understanding of different international cultures helped me to create my own mouth watering dishes. I got my family to go vegan by promising that I will not sacrifice flavor or our health. I want to make my clients smile when they see my dish arrive at their door. I want to help people understand that plants, legumes, nuts, and grains have flavor too. And plant based proteins are better options then supporting cruel farming practices. Vegan and plant based diets are satisfying in more ways than one.
