I've been cooking at the underground restaurant, The Wooden Table since 2011. We focus on bold flavors and fun concepts inspired by the rich cultural mix of the South Bay Area. Our menus frequently include Italian, Vietnamese, Filipino, Japanese and Mexican ingredients, among many others. One of my favorite things to do is explore ethnic markets and bring interesting flavors back to the diners of The Wooden Table. I'm equally passionate about using and learning as much as I can about our beautiful local produce. We source with the seasons, our flavors are global but our style is undeniably Californian.
