He’s got an on-site garden he customized with organic guru Mark Marino, legion local produce partners like Bad Dog Farms, and even honey and salt harvested on property. But his secret sauce reveals itself in his intuitive combination of sophistication and humility that makes dishes like the line-caught big-eye tuna poke—with jalapeño and citrus ponzu, avocado, garden crisps and wakame seaweed salad—so revelatory. Call it an irreverent, blue-collar approach to a high-class, white-jacket life. Like him, his food is simultaneously intense and relaxed, and always original.
