Chef Stephen is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Daniel Nardicio’s summer 2013 celebrity line up! Lorna Luft, Carol, Channing, and Margaret Cho will be arriving soon and the menus are in creative development now. 

After one season at Jumping Jacks Seafood Shack and three seasons as the only chef that has been able to restore the history, culinary reputation and popularity of the famous Top of the Bay restaurant Stephen has been able to rival the world famous Monster Bar/Lounge/Restaurant in Cherry Grove, Fire Island. Chef Stephen is now at the Island Breeze and has brought back its long overdue reputation, menu and style.

Chef Daniello does what he does best! He takes the name, menu and reputation of a restaurant and brings it back to life again.
