A sense of place

Memorable meals start with great ingredients. The Tidewater region, with its abundance of food sources—farmers, watermen, cheese makers, craft purveyors—is a food-lover’s nirvana. Chef Carlisle is passionate about developing and maintaining close relationships with local culinary partners. 

He tirelessly researches dishes, flavors, ingredients and customs of the South to yield interpretations that are both familiar and innovative. Mindful of the calendar, Chef Carlisle and his team of cooks and gardeners regularly rotate menus to reflect seasonal culinary rhythms.




Executive Chef Carlisle and Chef de Cuisine Ernie will be cooking up something special for a great big ole gathering of fall feasting!
