Thereafter, Chef Nick has continuously impressed restaurant patrons in five star restaurants like the Brookville House, Chio’s Café and Stefan’s Country Restaurant. His continued passion for cooking and drive for excellency has led to such masterpiece creations as the “Shrimp Athena”, “Scampi Maison” and “Veal Brazil” just to mention a few.
