A Shared Vision

Paul McCabe and Amy DiBiase may have first shared a kitchen in 2001, but their culinary journeys and styles have since ebbed and flowed. Now reconverging at Vistal, they have combined their contrasting interpretations of local cuisine and created an entirely unique menu, as singular as the city it represents.
