After embracing plant-based nutrition, Chef Clayton put his natural talent for combining flavors and perfect seasonings to work. Going meat and dairy-free was made easier by his uncanny ability to present dishes that are delectable and satisfy even the most ardent omnivores.

When Chef Clayton and his wife, Kim, started the business, it focused on food delivery, special events, and catering.

The restaurant landed in Westerville, Ohio, also the longtime home of its owners.
