We had an amazing dinner service with Chef Kirill and Deana.
It was the BEST MEAL we’ve had on this trip and we were quite saddened we didn’t use them the previous days! Just a fantastic service, articulating meal and an engaging personality ❤️ Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

Our experience was with chef Kirill Grechin and I highly recommend. Chef was very helpful and flexible during the meal planning stages. His menu offerings were diverse and creative. He was also very helpful in assisting me with selecting wine that would compliment his flavors. He arrived promptly and was very organized. His partner provided excellent and attentive service throughout the meal.
Our appetizer was an elevated version of a steak street taco. The meat was cooked perfectly and very tender, the other flavors included a made by hand salsa that was absolutely mouth-watering. The garnish was some kind of crunchy sprout that added not only wonderful texture but a balancing flavor.
Next we enjoyed a hearty pumpkin soup and chef was kind enough to provide us with an education about the kinds of pumpkins that are available in this region for culinary use. I definitely plan to purchase some next time I visit the market.
The entree was very generous portion of perfectly cooked salmon with pea purée topped with a fresh guacamole and paired with a zucchini and tomato salad.
Every dish was fresh and tasted alive and delicious ????.
Dessert was just a ridiculous (in a good way) explosion of flavor, texture and temperature. I don’t even think that I can recall all of the ingredients but it definitely had deliciously cooked peaches, candied hazelnuts, a tiny amount of blue cheese and something frozen. It was EVERYTHING you want in a dessert.
The clean up was quick and thorough, my husband and I were left seated at the table with a glass of wine, a full belly and a huge smile!
This was our first experience with Take a Chef, we will definitely be using the service again and we will be seeking out more of Chef Grechin.
Highly, highly recommend.
