Cooking experience: Scotty, originally from Columbus, Ohio, started off as a dishwasher in a steakhouse and went on to work in five star French restaurants and hotels in the US and in Europe.

We cook to order using quality ingredients in an impeccably clean environment and with friendly service,” says Scotty.

I follow both rules, seasoning one side when raw and the other (the side I will be presenting the meat) seared.
