Ken Trickilo

Liberty House Restaurant - Jersey City, NJ

There’s a reason why New Jersey is called the Garden State. At this seasonal dinner Bernard’s Inn alum Ken Trickilo will demonstrate it with a menu featuring the state’s most impressive early spring ingredients: morels, asparagus, and, of course, ramps.
