She was then quickly hired as a Sauté Chef at one of New York’s finest seasonal restaurants, Superfine in DUMBO. While on the East Coast, Sherry was an active participant in New York and New Jersey’s urban agriculture movement as a former farmer at La Finca Del Sur, the first female founded and operated farm in the South Bronx.

From sourcing, menu planning, and presentation, Sherry keeps in mind the specific tastes and desires of each individual client and strives to bring the freshest, local ingredients to your table.
