Kateri Danforth, Chef


Steve Paustenbach, Restaurant Manager
Steve joined our team in September and has brought a breath of fresh guest service from his first day. With over 25 years in the hospitality industry Steve's insight and guidance on exceeding our guest's expectations is unparalleled. His passion for excellence and relentless pursuit on improvement is assisting in driving the vision that you see today. When he’s not exceeding our guest's expectations, Steve enjoys spending time with his family and a weekly Sudoku puzzle. You might even catch him on the links as he's been golfing at Thornberry since it was just the Iroquois 9.
