Exclusive Chef Spotlight Menu featuring Anastasia Danos: Mama Anna’s House

“My mom was many things, including an incredible home cook. She passed when I was 14 years old, but I saved her notebook, hand-written with all her recipes. She was an immigrant and a stay-at-home mom who perfected her craft. All along the way, I was “apprenticing; learning and devouring not only her delicious food, but all the knowledge. Over the years, I’ve perfected her recipes and made them my own to be able to pass down to my own daughter.” – Chef Anastasia

“Come in come in, what would you like to eat?” - My mother anytime someone came over
