I believe our stories are told by the food we cook and eat. Where The Great Southern Café is my history, 87 Central Square is the ever-changing story of the “now.” Where creativity and cultures overlap. Celebrating the best food and drink that we want to enjoy now, in this moment. I hope you find the flavors of my life and cooking to your liking. We’ll be looking for you.
