English peas, sugar snap pea vines, asparagus, artichokes and sweet onions are incorporated into 10 new dishes on the menu at The Deck, 627 Sleepy Hollow Lane, next door to the newly renamed Driftwood Kitchen, due to open this summer.
Chef Rainier Schwarz, who trained in Switzerland and was mentored by Joachim Splichal, says “By utilizing the freshest ingredients, I am able to achieve complexity in flavor without complicating the dish.”
The new menu is available daily for lunch and dinner. For more information visit thedecklaguna.com.
