Gesine’s roots started in and around Stuttgart, Germany is known for Schnitzel, Spatzle, Potato Salat, and all things Pretzel. Gesine comes from a German family with a tradition in restaurants. John Franchetti, a third-generation Sonoma County native, met Gesine in Anchorage, Alaska over a bowl of black bean soup. For John, it was love at first sight, and eventually, together, they partnered in life and the restaurant scene, wanting to share their love for hospitality, and the quality of food they both love. His formal training and experience in New Orleans with Emeril Lagasse, add to the little surprises in his flavors. Gesine brings countless years of restaurant and catering management and John brings out the amazing flavors in their food.
