With James Beard Best Chef: South Semi-Finalist (2012, 2014) Chad Johnson as the Executive Chef, we reexamine classic cuisine from around the world and elevate it with a modern twist. Developed out of Bern’s Steak House traditions, our restaurant continues to do things differently with great pride and passion.
Some recipes are timeless. Classics that never vanish, but occasionally fall out of favor. Ignored by the culinary world until one inspired chef pulls out an aged recipe card and begins to breathe into it a new life. Obsessing over the components, paying each basic ingredient extra attention. Arranging the parts, sampling, then changing them. Crafting. Refining. Elevating. A patient dedication like that of a winemaker’s élevage. Raising up a vintage until perfection. A plate so well-crafted it recalls the past but lives fully in the present.
Using the freshest, premium ingredients and preparing them using modern cooking techniques that highlight the ingredient’s inherent flavors, Chef Chad Johnson’s culinary passions are translated into the nostalgia of your childhood, but with our own signature.
