Meet the business owners
Maria began her career in hospitality as a teenager working summers in her uncle's restaurant in Holland. Every night after the restaurant closed, Maria recalls sitting with the entire staff at a long table in the dining room drinking a glass of wine, discussing the evening and the next day's service. It was here that her love of restaurants began.
Directly out of high school Maria attended Paul Smith's College where she studied Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management. In 2000 she moved to New York City to continue her career. Here she garnered positions in the restaurants of such renowned chefs as Michael White, Daniel Boulud, and Michael Lomonaco. From there, she opened Castor and Pollux, a company that organized excursions into the country to an open air kitchen where guests were served five course meals, using local food and wine.
A graduate of The School of Culinary Arts in Houston, Texas, Angie Berry’s career is punctuated by stints at some of the country’s top restaurants including Gotham Bar & Grill, Del Posto and Asiate in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. Berry’s cooking blends classic French technique with modern twists.
