Bryan Gregg

Escape - Montclair, NJ

Landlocked Montclair and coastal Dover couldn’t seem more different, but for chefs and friends Bryan Gregg and Evan Hennessey, a Beard House collaboration is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the bounty of land and sea. Join us as they showcase their shared hyper-seasonal ethos in a regionally inspired surf-and-turf feast.
