Head Chef Bernard Althaus spends most of his time perfecting his exquisite dishes and pleasing his clientele five nights a week on Balboa Island. At home he harvests his own organic garden to produce the fresh herbs used in his dishes (the name Basilic is the French word for basil- Althaus' favorite go-to herb for seasoning) and grows the yellow and red, organic, heirloom tomatoes found in the summer seasonal Special Tomato Salad. In the kitchen, he prepares each dish and every dish to-order, making sure each plate is served to perfection from the Swiss Onion Soup, the John Dory Filet, to the Crème Brûlée. He'll often make a quick appearance in the dining room to greet guests between seatings.
