“We try to source as locally as possible and ‘Permission to Come Aboard’ gives us the opportunity to explore our very own back yard,” said Executive Chef Chuck Abair who uses market-fresh ingredients from local artisans and farmers in his house-made specialties and seasonal Mediterranean-inspired menus.
