Chef Mike Buono’s culinary perspective is rooted in cultural traditions with his father, a first-generation Italian from just south of Naples.
His favourite techniques and flavour profiles were developed by working with a broad range of chefs and cuisines in kitchens locally and abroad, helping him define his own unique style. He fondly refers to it as Modern Mediterranean heavily influenced by the Pacific Northwest.
Chef Mike Buono introduces simple seasonal dishes packed with natural flavour with a focus on quality, excellence, and fun. The centrepiece of the kitchen is wood fired al forno oven, which lends itself to the small plate family style dining. Fresh crudo and charcuterie, creative house-made pastas, Neapolitan pizza, crisp salads, and seasonal veggie dishes are prepared with bold, well-balanced flavours. His goal is to utilize seasonal ingredients while working closely with local farmers and foragers to reconnect with the local community.
