Chatting with the Chef: Tim Cottini


Chef Timothy Cottini has over 20 years of experience and has worked with some of the best chefs in the industry. Over the years, Timothy has grown to appreciate where food comes from and the importance of using sustainably grown food served in the peak of its season. At his current restaurant, Fork, he focuses his energy to highlight local produce, sustainable fish, and naturally raised meats. We look forward to his new steakhouse focused venture, Knife, opening late Summer 2016! Check out his skills at his Chef Demo on Wednesday, June 29,
