Frasca Food and Wine

A respect for honest ingredients coupled with innovation and technique helped skyrocket Frasca chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson to one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs. That was in 2005, but the accolades continue to pile up with nods in Bon Appetit, Gourmet, the New York Times, Esquire, and James Beard. Master sommelier Bobby Stuckey uses his finesse to oversee staff and charms diners in the elegant, understated dining room.
