A real chef's chef well-respected by local restauranteurs, Longo conducts award-winning cooking classes for adults and children. She knows her local food products as well as a wide swath of global cuisine. With her smaller restaurant, she's able to keep the quality top-notch and select the freshest seafood sources.
Sure, you can get a traditional crab cake made with jumbo lump crabmeat, served golden brown. But you can also plate it with a smoked crab cake!

Longo does her own take on the traditional slaw accompaniment: broccoli slaw!
