I'm a local, and I have enjoyed chef Gonzales' place for the past decade. One doesn't go to A Chef's Kitchen simply to eat a good meal, though you will indeed be treated to an excellent dining experience. You go to experience wonderful food, to learn good cooking techniques, and to enjoy a great conversation about life, the universe and everything culinary.
John varies the menu seasonally, so you can repeat the experience on a regular basis. Well, the skillet cornbread is a constant, but that's worth repetition as well! The menus combine ingredients that most people can find, and John carefully explains the preparation so that anyone who is not kitchen-phobic can hope to replicate the experience. This is a combined five star meal, cooking class, and performance show all in one. It's entertaining in many dimensions. John also pairs three courses with appropriate wines, none of which are budget busters for the normal family.
A Chef's Kitchen is clearly one of the best dining experiences in eastern Virginia.
