Unfortunately, due to creative differences I will no longer be attached to Hooked. Some of you in our close circles know and understand the situation and I thank you for your criticism, undying support, and understanding as well.
As always, food, cooking, and hospitality are one of my many passions. I feel that food always brings people together at any given time and I will always enjoy cooking and experimenting with new dishes!
For now, I'll take off this hat and I wish the best for the staff Hooked Seafood Bar and their future endeavours!

More as we learn it.
