Chef Joshua's reviews
Chef Josh is great. He showed up right on time and his food was delicious. He was easy to talk to and taught us a lot about Rhode Island. We are really happy we booked him. Highly recommend.

Chef Josh was phenomenal. He was warm and friendly providing us with great conversation on top of the most delicious meal. We felt like we knew him from his stories and passion for making great food. He took the time to prepare the framework for our decadent meal well in advance of his arrival. We will most certainly recommend him to anyone who would listen and hope to enjoy his culinary masterpieces again in the future!
