1. Epic Restaurant  - See Menu

“I have been cooking since I was 15 years old.  I believe a great meal is not only about the food, but also the wine, the conversation and the people you share it with.  My wife and children are the most important ingredients in my life.  They are what inspire me.  Epic is about my family.  Food should be both emotional and comforting.  Epic tells my story, my love of food and is a journey of life experiences and triumphs.  My life is Epic…” – Jamie Keating

What better connects people than a great steak and a nice glass of wine."
