It's been a lot of work—consecutive 14-hour days and I are now friends—but it's also been a lot of fun, and a wonderful learning experience so far. My sous chef is a good friend of mine from culinary school, and together we're rocking this place out.
I'll leave you with a couple menu items from the restaurant. It's not particularly steampunk, but it's fun and delicious...
|Triple Grilled Cheese—Pepperjack, Mozzarella, Cheddar|
|Pepperoni Pizza, hearth-fired|
|Italian Roast Beef Sandwich (Mozzarella, Roasted Red Peppers)|
