Why did you become a chef?

I have always had in interest in food, from making cookies with my grandmother to cooking with my dad in the kitchen at a young age. When I started my first restaurant job at the age of 15, I immediately fell in love with the rush and intensity of the job, the attention to detail, the passion and the people I was surrounded with day by day. 

What’s the best and most challenging thing about your job?

The best part of the job is making people happy, giving them food that represents you and your kitchen team, and the ingredients that you work with. The most challenging part is the lifestyle that comes with it; missing special occasions, long hours and little to no social life but the pro’s definitely out weigh the cons, though.

If you were a customer at Maine, what 3 dishes you would choose from the menu?

I would choose for sure the fish tacos, the 48-hour short rib, and the halibut.

If you could throw a dinner party and cook for anyone in the world (alive or dead) who would it be and why?

Either Woody Allen or Bill Murray or the two of them together. I don’t think I need to explain why, and if I did I don’t think I could put it into words.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island, what 3 ingredients would you take?

Butter, Franks Red Hot Sauce, and Sri Racha sauce.

Why should people come to Maine Oyster Bar & Grill?

It’s a very cool and hip space with a great ambiance and space, really cool people, good food and at a very affordable price. 

Seafood-Tower

You can now choose from a wide selection of  irresistible lunch dishes such as the revamped seafood platter, which includes grilled lobster, scallops, shrimp, and octopus. If you’re more of a meat lover? the much-loved grilled selections are on offer and we’re talking mouth watering corn-fed spring chicken, parmesan veal chop, and the Australian Angus filet mignon all accompanied with Maine’s signature sides such as the classic steak Frites (our mouths are literally watering).
