Chef Jonathan Martinez invites you to eat what you crave

Jonathan Martinez was all smiles when I arrived at Last Licks in Liberty, NY. The space is open, bright, with a warm, sharp color scheme of red, white and black. He’s describing all the recent renovations and upgrades—pausing often to greet customers like old friends—that brought the restaurant’s vibe closer to his vision.

Comeback Kids: Sean Zigmund's homestead is all natural

Some people decide to stop using plastic or start biking to work. Other people, I guess, have a complete epiphany about their health and the planet and eventually spend three months retrofitting a ‘97 Chevy Express Van to travel 32,000 miles on waste vegetable oil.

Gerard Manzi and Joanne Snow-Manzi are getting ready to open up Gerard’s Cafe, just down the street from their previous venture, Gerard’s River Grill.

Gerard’s coming back to town

NARROWSBURG, NY — Gerard Manzi and Joanne Snow-Manzi are still in the process of bringing their vision to life, but it’s coming together quickly. Despite all the work ahead of them, they said people can stop by for an affordable and delicious homemade meal by the end of April.
