Our Team

Farm to Fork

Our Philosophy:

We believe that locally sourced seasonal ingredients make for sensational meals. That is the reason Jon, our executive chef, has spent time building relationships with all of our farmers and artisanal partners. Our menus are handcrafted and we value the integrity of each dish we create. We source our ingredients from local dairy farmers, produce farmers, artisan cheeses makers, brewers, fish mongers, poultry and livestock farmers, bee keepers and many more neighboring artisans. Depending on the season and availability, we can’t always promise our client’s locally sourced ingredients, but we will choose organic products in their stead.

Capers began the transition to a zero waste, earth friendly company in earnest over the past ten years. Since then, we have introduced several measures to reduce our corporate footprint. At Capers all food is composted and all trash is recycled.
