Benvenuti a 2015!
BenGusto™ Dining has been in business for over a year now, and we’ve had the greatest time offering private chef and waiting services to make memorable meals and parties all over the DC metropolitan area.
My staff and I here at BenGusto are proud to present you with the winter menu for 2015. After months of hard work testing new recipes and experimenting with new techniques of modern cuisine, I am pleased to say that the new dishes that will be appearing on this upcoming year’s menus will definitely be memorable ones. With a bit of luck and a lot of love, we’ll inch closer towards accomplishing our mission: to create the exceptional dining experience.
Let’s toast to 2015! I hope to see you at the table.
– Chef Ben Gaiarin
