Local, long-time food service Pro’s Chef Rick Wineman and Al Barilla recently opened Restore Kitchen, a sit-down restaurant with a gastropub feel that provides innovative food choices as well as popular American cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The atmosphere is warm, casual, and elegant, and we serve made-from- scratch dishes using fresh local ingredients – from small plates and sharable eats, to salads, soups, burgers and other hand-helds, a solid entree selection and a small array of unusual desserts – something for every appetite and type of eater. 8 TVs for sports and a digital jukebox. We offer a well-rounded cross-section of local craft beers, and boutique wines meticulously selected to compliment our menu. Enjoy our Appy Hour M-F from 4-6:30pm with small plate selections starting at $2 or choose a quick appetizer to share starting at $7. Come in for a small bite and a flight of beer or wine, or linger over a delicious multi-course meal.
Restore Kitchen exists to provide restoration through the pleasures and benefits of craft food, beer and wine.
About the Founders
CHEF RICK WINEMAN began his culinary career in the country inns of eastern Pennsylvania, apprenticed with European chefs at the Hotel DuPont in Delaware, and spent a number of years in Aspen and Vail just as food began to sit up on the plate, and tradition was deconstructed into nouvelle cuisine. At the Los Angeles Convention Center his dedication to quality, culinary innovation and environmental stewardship drew attention and praise from clients at the Grammy Foundation, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and many others. The 2012 All-Stars Baseball game brought him to Angels Stadium of Anaheim where he introduced a new level of sophistication in culinary offerings, operational standards capable of feeding up to 43,000 satisfied guests in one afternoon, and the grilled beef brisket sandwich.
AL BARILLA: co-founder, managing partner, has seen the restaurant business from the inside out. His knowledge and expertise cover the whole enchilada, literally and figuratively. Top down management experience includes COO, president and purchasing director, along with front-of-the-house savvy as an owner/operator, the keen culinary and artistic eye of a chef, and the refined palette of a steady consumer of trendy cuisine. His professional connection to Rick Wineman began in 1998, and while their careers took different paths, their friendship remained. Their pursuits include cooking for the fun of it, football, drinking, and golf, betting on outcomes with ever-compounding improbability at $5 each. Their shared values of culinary excellence with the best possible service have come together to manifest the concept of Restore Kitchen.
