Our Team

 

Amazing food made by amazing people.  I consider our chefs to be magicians because with every bite not only do you get amazing flavors, but you taste the love and passion they put into each dish. I am so lucky to have found people who raise the bar for our service each time they cook.

- Your idea of a perfect meal? First off, we must be around a round table! So all can be a part of the lovely conversation. I’m surrounded by people I love whether that is family, friends or the Gundalow team! We are low key, enjoying a meal at someone’s home. Laughing loud of course :).  And the menu is a smorgasbord of everyone’s best!
