Our ingredients are almost all locally sourced and organic, and the poultry and meats are from farms that treat animals humanely.

Executive Chef Serena Bass
In 2002, Gotham magazine asked her to write for them and for 7 months the column “Serena Says” appeared in the magazine. It was variously: a witty treatise on life in the meatpacking district as it started to develop; a sleepless night; food aversions, and anything that would make a good story.
An editor at Stewart, Tabori & Chang asked her to write an entertaining book. Bass took two years – on the weekends – writing a book with stories, recipes, and entertaining tips and lore for every meal through the day.
“Serena: Food & Stories,” her James Beard Award-winning cookbook, is available as an ebook!
Serena wrote for Epicurious for several months in 2010 and had a regular column in the Real Eats section of Nomad Live plus contributed essays to Gourmet Magazine on line. Bass used to be a regular guest on Martha Stewart Sirius radio, talking about food trends, recipes, and entertaining while also answering caller’s questions. She has also appeared on the Cooking Channel and has given talks and TV demonstrations about feeding celebrities and how to cook some of their favorite foods.
Serena currently consults on weddings, charitable events, and new restaurant openings where she develops menus, trains staff, and oversees the quality of all components, both food and style related. Her most recent venture is at Lido Harlem where she is taking the popular neighborhood restaurant to a new level.
