Devon Espinosa: "Bartender Of The Year" 2012,


We have known Chef Fretz + cocktail master Devon Espinosa for some time. When the opportunity presented itself to work with the two of them to collaborate on a basket, we jumped at the opportunity. With Chef Fretz’s mouthwatering take on global cuisines and Devon’s masterful libations, we are excited to share the flavors of some of our personal favorites with you at home!  

Every moment at The Church Key is an interactive experience. From their inventive menu with dim-sum style service, to canned and frozen cocktails, flaming desserts and even the server attire, The Church Key strives to constantly push the restaurant envelope. Chic enough for a celebratory evening yet approachable enough to be your neighborhood go-to. Dining at The Church Key is like walking into a meal that has already begun.
