The Perfect Gift

Stack of Christmas gifts

The Perfect Gift … Kinda sounds like a Hallmark movie, doesn’t it ?  I confess …  I love all those movies!

Chef Kurtis Becker started here right after the Fourth of July holiday (coincidentally, his 30th birthday!); he comes to us from Durango’s Palace Restaurant … what can I say … their loss, our gain!
