MISSION STATEMENT

I am always striving to create an individualized dining experience that is both refined yet unexpected for my clients to enjoy personally and professionally. Constantly evolving and changing, my cuisine is inspired by my continuous travels as well as by my native Serbian roots and traditional French training. My cuisine highlights the best of locally sourced, seasonal produce of Austin, with great emphasis on perfect techniques, bold flavors, finesse and impeccable presentation

The full-service experience includes preparing, serving, and offering detailed explanations for each dish, as well as cleaning and ensuring that your kitchen looks exactly as it did when I arrived.

Your event can be as small as a romantic table of two to a 20 person bash.
