Deborah: life, love, food.
Dapper in her starched-white chef jacket, Deborah presides at both the bar and open-air kitchen, where she can be seen mixing exotic drinks as alluring as liquid jewels and giving impromptu cooking lessons to the line cooks. From the way she greets her faithful clientele (expect a hug, someday), by her estimate "80% gay and lesbian," you can see she has more energy than can ever be dispelled. Certainly much of that energy and enthusiasm winds up in the pot and pan--in her fresh angel hair pasta with Italian tuna, a sweet soy-glazed monkfish with fava succotash and in desserts like blackberry creme brulee or a cooling key-lime tart. Eat here once and you become a lifelong lover of Deborah's food.
