THE CREW: Sean, Lucas, Jerry, Toby, Alex, Trudie; Annie, Gina, Sara, Sally, Jeff; Allice, David, Sarah.
Jerry is the chef and general manager. His thirty years of experience portray an extensive knowledge and passion of Italian cuisine. Born and raised on the Olympic Peninsula, he started his career at a young age and traveled to Italy where he learned his craft by working in restaurants such as Il Pescatore, Bastianelli al Molo, La Contea, and Le Colline Ciociare (a Michelin Guide one-star restaurant). West of the Atlantic to name a few are Sandro’s in NYC, Obelisk in DC, and The Harvest Vine in Seattle. When he’s not cooking, he is tending to his garden, building a pizza oven or pressing apples to make hard cider.
Gina Tolentino Corso
Gina is the marketing and creative manager. She is a freelance graphic designer, a painter and illustrator, and lover of good food. Her artwork can be seen at the restaurant, or in her new children’s book: A Whale Who Dreamt of a Snail. You can see her helping out in the front of the house most Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, greeting folks and making sure everyone is welcomed.
