When we have reciprocal dining, members from neighboring clubs always fill our dining room. Why? Because of Anthony! His gourmet table spreads are known for making food come to life, stemming from his motto that "A heart full of passion for food isn’t enough—dedication is what will make it phenomenal.” Important, too, is his on-going education to stay current with food ideas. He's uncommon among most chefs in his genuine desire to listen to what members have to say and work to give them what they desire.
