As soon as Shaun turned twenty-one, he hopped into the hospitality industry and began serving drinks. After perfecting his skills on making Black and Tan’s, he traveled the world and went on to become a teacher. He soon realized that the rewards of running a world class restaurant would become his destiny.
A message from Executive Chef Gabriel Cappelli:
"One of the hardest questions that everyone asks is ‘What kind of food is it?’ And to sum it up, there is no one definitive style or type that the food is. Instead, the inspiration came from the format of how glamorous restaurants used to be. Ala carte items, bigger entree portions, stand alone entrees and sides etc. But at the same time, we've done a great job of keeping the dishes modern with a combination of flavors from around the world. Imagine if Hollywood restaurants in the golden era had the access to the food culture we have knowledge of today. How would they serve and present it? Welcome to the Edmon."
